Having more than 20 years of business management experience from employment in companies like GE Capital, Glen Wakeman decided to use his qualifications to start his own business in 2015. The business, which is named LaunchPad Holdings, is centered around helping aspiring entrepreneurs develop better planning and management skills, and finding capital from outside investors when trying to start a new business (BlogWebPedia).
Glen Wakeman feels that it is important to pass his business knowledge and advice to future entrepreneurs in order to help them avoid experiencing failure when starting a new business venture. His deep curiosity about the reasons why new businesses seem to fail at such a high rate is what prompted him to start LaunchPad Holdings, which is a company where he holds the position of Chief Executive Officer, as well as being its co-founder.
Through his company, he offers beginning business owners a software program that focuses on helping them come up with a solid plan for their ideas. In this program, he uses what he calls a LaunchPad Toolkit that will connect them to other business advisors and potential providers of the capital they need to start and keep their new business going. His main focus is on risk management, finding human capital and helping entrepreneurs strengthen their leadership abilities.
Glen Wakeman received his business training from the University of Chicago, where he earned an MBA degree (https://www.dailyforexreport.com/glen-wakeman-global-mogul/). He went on from there to earn a BS degree in Economics and Finance from the University of Scranton. During his many years in the areas of business management, operations, and technology, he developed the kind of expertise that qualified him to become the type of advisor and motivator he is today.
He has overseen business operations in 30 regions around the world and has lived in a number of other countries such as Asia, Europe, and South America. On top of being a successful executive and mentor, who in addition to running LaunchPad Holdings was the former president and founder of a company called Nova Four, he is also an inventor and a writer.
