A business consultant who wants to change the way we do business and build a better world.
A business consulting industry pioneer who’s created the platform and technology to build a digital marketplace for those who need help.
And a self-confessed geek who’s also a geek about technology.
“This is the future,” said Josh Hennings, founder of upstart.com, which allows people to order goods and services online and then receive a prompt to pick them up from the source.
“I believe it’s going to change everything.”
The launch of upstarter comes as a growing number of entrepreneurs are turning their passion for innovation into a profitable business model.
In 2015, the online marketplace Zappos opened up to the public and in 2016, Airbnb launched its own digital marketplace, making it possible for anyone to rent out their apartment for a fee.
And in 2015, Hennersons company, business consultancy business consulting, started up.
Hennies company is building on that platform and creating a digital platform for those in the software and hardware industries.
“We want to build this business and start a new business,” he said.
“The opportunity to be able to get started on the ground floor of a new technology or software business and be able take the next step in that and make a positive impact on the world.”
Hennings says the future of the tech industry could be pretty exciting.
“We’re seeing these exponential changes that we’re not really seeing on a human level, but we’re seeing it in the numbers and we’re witnessing it on a technological level,” he explained.
“The world is getting richer and richer, but people are struggling to keep up with it.”
So I think it’s a very exciting time for technology and the way that we live and work is changing.
“Henna says he’s hoping the marketplace can serve as a way for people to make money on the side and he hopes it will help other entrepreneurs to launch their own businesses.”
But Henna says that upstart’s digital marketplace is far from perfect. “
It’s the only way for a lot of people to get into the space.”
But Henna says that upstart’s digital marketplace is far from perfect.
“At the end of the day, we are not creating a platform,” he admitted.
“But we are working on it, we’re trying to make it better and we hope it will be better than what we are doing right now.”
But upstart says its software and business consulting business consulting will soon be making its way to the big screen and will be available to anyone in the world who needs a solution to help them grow their businesses.
Hennins said that the platform will also allow people to find out about opportunities to help others who need it and will work with them to build solutions that solve real-world problems.
“As we continue to grow, we want to help these people and we want them to be part of our platform,” Hennins explained.
“And hopefully we can help these other people to be successful too.”
The platform also will provide upstart with the ability to connect with customers to help guide them on their growth journey.
“If a customer asks us to create a business plan, we will provide a way to do that.
But at the end, we also want to make sure that our business is sustainable and that we have the tools and resources to be there when the time is right,” Henna explained.
