Glen Wakeman Helps Budding Entrepreneurs Realize Their Dreams

Beginning a startup comes with many innate risks. In fact, it is estimated that 9 out of every 10 startups fail. Yet every year thousands of companies think that they will be the one in ten who succeed and try anyhow. While there are no guarantees in the business world there are steps that can be taken to maximize the possibility that your startup is successful. That is exactly the idea behind the business that Glen Wakeman has created which he calls Launchpad Holdings, LLC (Releasefacts). Launchpad is given the name because it seeks to give aspiring entrepreneurs a place to start and begin to have their business dreams realized. Wakeman created the company as a way to invest in the startups that he views as having the most potential to succeed. All of this is possible because of Glen Wakeman’s long and successful career in the business world and his many connections within a variety of sectors. One of the biggest factors that has led to Wakeman’s career successes is his keen ability to mitigate risks in all aspects of business ventures. By minimizing risks he is able to maximize the chance that a profit can be realized. Unknowns and unforeseen events are frequently the cause of startups to fail and by pairing with a veteran in the space you are able to have more eyes on potential hazards that may be up ahead. Wakeman wants to increase the probability that the startup is successful. If the startup succeeds then so does Launchpad Holdings so there is a mutual interest between the two partnering entities. Wakeman is especially excited of how machine learning will impact the businesses around us and hopes to invest in a startup that can effectively utilize this type of technology to solve a plethora of problems that are to complicated or too quickly changing for humans to be able to analyze and have an impact on. People like Glen Wakeman give startups an opportunity to succeed in an otherwise brutal business environment. If we are to invest in our future and continue to prop up the innovators of tomorrow then more business leaders would follow in his footsteps.

Stream Energy’s Green Power Outpaces the Competition

As the technology behind green energy continues to get more advanced and efficient, green eco-friendly energy companies like Stream Energy are finding themselves in the perfect place for continued long-term growth (Askreporter). On the contrary, energy companies that depend on fossil fuels such as coal and petroleum to power their services, are increasingly finding themselves falling by the wayside as consumers and government policies move to support more earth-friendly clean energy providers.

With states like California and New York recently passing even stricter carbon emissions reduction laws and moving towards wind, solar, and natural gas to fuel their respective states, it is getting harder for known energy company polluters to turn a profit. Both California and New York are known as policy trendsetters for the greater United States, so it is highly likely that more states will follow suit in passing much stricter carbon emission restriction laws.

Stream Energy’s services are largely powered by solar, natural gas, wind, and other clean energy sources. Energy’s huge growth in the recent years points to the fact that US-based energy consumers are becoming increasingly green-conscious and unwilling to financially support any company that is not onboard with the most modern clean energy standards. No one wants a dirty state, and the first step towards that agenda is removing the largest corporate polluters from the area, and that starts primarily in the energy sector.

The more traditional fossil fuel energy sector hit the hardest in the green energy shift has been coal. Coal energy providers have seen harsh national laws passed towards reducing their carbon emissions to such a level that many of the providers have been forced to go out of business. Coal-based energy is seen as one of the dirtiest and most prominent polluters out of any industrial sector. While there have been many advancements in clean coal energy over the last two decades that offer a drastic reduction in carbon emissions, governments and consumers alike feel a need to shift away from coal-based energy completely. It is widely agreed upon the consumer based dollars used to propel and advancement wind, solar, and natural gas energy production is money better spent on securing a cleaner and brighter future for everyone.

With Delaware, Stream Energy’s Growth Continues Into 2018

Make that eight states now! On December 8th, 2017, Stream Energy entered the market of Delaware. This is the second market expansion for Stream Energy in 2017, with the Illinois expansion back in September 2017.

Stream Energy is a provider for wireless, protective, and home energy services. Since the company’s inception in 2005 in Dallas, Texas, Stream Energy markets its services directly to customers.

President and CEO Larry Mondry heralded the entrance into Delaware’s market thanks the completion of a state licensing application. Along with the company’s home state of Texas, Stream Energy services Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Georgia, Maryland, Illinois, Delaware, and the District of Columbia. Chief Operating Officer Dan O’Malley remarked how Stream Energy has made a name for itself in the northeast energy markets now thanks to the company’s entrance into Delaware.

In addition to entering the Illinois and Delaware markets in 2017, the company hired David Faranetta as the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and as Executive Vice President. Faranetta’s hire, thanks to his financial management skills in energy markets, highlights how Stream Energy is looking to grow further in the coming years.

Much of the success of Stream Energy is owed to their home state’s utility grid. Back in 2001, Texas deregulated its energy utility system. This allowed a company like Stream Energy to directly communicate their services to customers. The ability of Stream Energy to grow in Texas helped the company expand and grow in ways that has led to its position today. This included efforts to enter the northeast energy markets which has become wildly successful. Over the span of 12 years, Stream Energy’s growth includes over $8 billion in revenue and accolades as one of the largest direct-selling energy companies in the global marketplace.

By entering the Delaware market, Stream Energy and its leadership under Mondry and Faranetta have immense opportunities to capitalize on in 2018.
