Fred Green, Director of Launch Pad FT, will be our speaker in February.
Fred Green is Director of Launch Pad FT, a business incubator located at Francis Tuttle’s Business Innovation Center in Edmond, OK. Launch Pad FT opened August 2013 and is one of 38 incubators certified by the State of Oklahoma. The incubator operates at or close to capacity, providing counseling and training to early stage and startup businesses in Oklahoma.
Fred is a graduate of the University of North Texas and worked in corporate positions for icons such as IBM and EDS for more than 25 years. He later established businesses in the Caribbean and US, culminating with a consulting firm specializing in helping struggling, small businesses survive. Prior to establishing Launch Pad FT, Fred opened and operated a business incubator for the Paris, Texas Economic Development Corporation.
The Launch Pad FT business incubator is certified by the State of Oklahoma and is the 13th business incubator in the Oklahoma Career Tech system. Launch Pad FT is an active participant in the National Business Incubation Association and the Oklahoma Business Incubator Association.
Launch Pad FT serves the needs of entrepreneurs starting a new venture as well as owners of early stage companies facing struggles in today’s economic environment. Business incubation is a process of analysis of the constraints and creation of a program to improve the business and management skill set of an entrepreneur. The intent of the incubation process is to “graduate” the client into the outside world of business better prepared to create a sustainable business that will contribute to the regional economic growth and development.
