Meet The Founder, Deb Purvin
Deb Purvin is an entrepreneur, an executive, and an adventurer. In addition to the Business Owner’s MBA, Deb teaches several classes for the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business program. She has taught entrepreneurship at both SMU and UNT. She passionately believes that all business owners can be successful; they just need the right tools and knowledge – which she teaches in BOMBA.
Deb has successfully started, managed, grown, and sold two multi-million dollar businesses. Despite her Dartmouth and Harvard education, Deb made a lot of mistakes. The Business Owner’s MBA was born to help other entrepreneurs avoid these mistakes and to accelerate their learning curve, so they can be more profitable, more quickly. The results speak to BOMBA’s success.
When not managing her own companies, Deb has held many executive roles in the banking industry – working with entrepreneurs and business owners who recognize the value of having a banker who has “been there, done that.” Her banking experience includes companies with revenues from $10MM to $1B in many different industries.
Finally, Deb is an adventurer… she skied on the US Ski Team as a teenager – traveling to 6 of the 7 continents before she was 20. When she sold her first company, she and her family embarked on a 4.5 year sailing trip through Central and South America on a 45’ sloop. Now her adventures are more tame – she has 3 grandchildren that keep her busy.
