Glen Wakeman has been a successful businessman for more than 30 years. During this time he has founded his own companies as well as helped others do the same. He has also built up entire divisions for other companies around the world including in Asia, Latin America, Europe, and Northern America. He has a bachelor’s degree in economics and a master’s degree in finance. He started out his professional career at GE Capital where he traveled around the world setting up new businesses. He also founded Nova Four which was a consulting business where he offered people access to his business skills.
LaunchPad Holdings LLC is Glen Wakeman’s latest company. He says that over the years people have approached him who had great business ideas but the company they built on them failed. His research led him to conclude that the high failure rate of new enterprises was a direct result of people not building a good business plan which could take them through the beginning phases of a new company.
He says that LaunchPad Holdings solves this problem by having an online platform to build a business plan which uses a guided process he developed. The cost to build a business plan is just $100 and it takes around 30 minutes to complete one. Thousands of people have now used his platform to successfully launch their own companies.
One thing that Glen Wakeman really likes today in the world of business is big data. He says that large amounts of data is to hard to sift through for humans to come to any meaningful conclusions. The answer, he says, is machine learning. Machine Learning can go through vast swaths of information very clearly and then provide insights to business leaders they otherwise wouldn’t have had access to.
Glen Wakeman says that his curiosity is his best trait. It leads him to being highly productive because he can think of ways to solve problems from many different angles. It is his curiosity, he says, which enables him to satisfy customers of the companies he has established including LaunchPad Holdings.
