Explaining how he developed the idea of LaunchPad LLC, Mr. Wakeman reveals that he has a knack for matching ideas with money. For a long time, he had been concerned why many commercially viable ideas that had good startups ended up failing. He realized that the business concepts collapsed for lack of proper structures around them. It was in response to this need that Glen Wakeman decided to develop software to help people put an adequate plan around a business concept. It formed the genesis of LaunchPad Holdings.
Explaining how he has sustained such a remarkable productivity, Glen explains that it boils down to a productive daily routine. He explains that the pillars of his productivity are the allocation of duties among his team members, trust and non-backtracking. As a result of his investment in the growth of the company, Glen was recognized by the Board of General Electric after his term as a Leadership Role model.
Under the leadership of Mr. Wakeman, the relatively young company LaunchPad Holdings, founded in 2015, has been revolutionized to over 17000 staff and over $15 billion in assets.
Mr. Glen’s secret to his innovation? He says he generates new ideas by explaining them to others, that as Glen Wakeman says the ideas loud the feedback from the listeners indicate the quality of the thought and he thereby develops plans to put it to action. Visit Glen Wakeman’s profile at Linkedin.
