Published / by GSM

Entrepreneurs who want to give their business the best possible chance of success will find LaunchPad Holdings’ guided approach to business planning helpful. Glen Wakeman, co-founder of LaunchPad, once said in an Ideamensh interview that he saw too many startups with good ideas failing. He saw start-ups that naively believed that their idea was a plan; this is where LaunchPad’s planning software platform makes a difference. With LaunchPad SaaS, startups have a better chance of getting accepted by an incubator and receiving funding.

Glen Wakeman earned a BS in Economics from the University of Scranton and an MBA in Finance and from the University of Chicago. He has held a number of executive positions with an extensive global consumer finance background, in addition to being a successful investor. Wakeman’s methodology for building businesses is improving the Five Key Dimensions of Performance, which include:

  • Leadership
  • Human Capital
  • Execution
  • Risk Management
  • Governance

Wakeman currently serves as an advisor to the CEO of Dreamfunded, an equity crowd funding platform in addition to serving as LaunchPad Holdings’ CEO, where his experience with angel investing, capital raising and global financing platforms is invaluable. When asked what he does, Wakeman says he matches ideas with money. Glen Wakeman also advises Sitter Bees, an app for requesting an on-demand babysitter.

Interested in machine learning that takes advantage of the enormous amounts of data available, Glen Wakeman says that it is a trend that will solve problems in business and speed up decision making.

Blogging is another of Glen Wakeman’s interests; he regularly posts about business topics, including a recent post where he advised company owners to take a hands-on approach and not assume that teams are handling tasks correctly. It is good advice and Wakeman keeps himself involved in LaunchPad’s design revisions, sales and he keeps an eye on the competition as well.

The Interwoven Nature of Fashion and Technology in Contemporary Times

Published / by GSM

For anyone to get the most of either fashion or technology, he or she must understand the interwoven nature of both industries in today’s world. Some individuals were opportune to know this truth early enough; their profiting as a result can be seen by all. Chris Burch happens to be one of them.

 

Mr. Burch is simply a born-entrepreneur. He could not wait to pass out from college before harvesting millions of dollars in business. Together with his brother Bob, he started Eagles Eye apparel as a college boy. They only had to grow the company for a couple of years before selling it off for $165 million.

 

He was adventurous. Aside recording outstanding success in the fashion industry, he also made his marks in real estate and technology. His current company, Burch Creative Capital, has an impressive portfolio with clients from leading companies in the United States and beyond. Hearing Burch’s views on the topic has always been rewarding.

 

According to Burch, the 70s was simply given to boom box. It was the number one medium by which music lovers carried their favorite tunes and stations about. Everyone crazily went for it. Surprisingly, by the 90s, no one was talking about it. All eyes were on the Walkman as it was more fashionable and provided a personal music experience too good to overlook. It only took a decade for something better to replace the Walkman; the iPod became the new bride. That has been the trend, something better always comes up.

 

Modern fashion is spineless without technology. This is the view of many fashion designers today. They believe that innovation and functionality in fashion can only be achieved with the aid of technology. Anouk Wipprecht painted it this way: “[technology is] like a playground, a place of experiment, and as you dive deeper and deeper into the technology and systems, it rewards you with endless possibilities.”

 

Technology likewise needs fashion in many ways. Without fashion, it is sure to lose popularity and suffer huge lost in patronage. Fashion helps to sell technology into the heart of people. A good example is a Fashion Show where latest technological products are showcased. Awareness created through such mediums help to drive sales of technological products upward.

 

Sometimes, both fashion and technology combine to achieve unbelievable feats. For instance, both can be brought together to create kinetic energy. This awareness has led to the production of cloths specially designed to power appliances such as watch and mp3. It may not be long before the world witness a prototype shoe capable of charging cell phones when worn and used in walking or running.

 

The interwoven relationship between fashion and technology remains intact and is getting stronger and better every day. The world will surely be better for it.
