Thriving alongside the innovations of Silicon Beach, Colby Leachman is an entrepreneur through and through.
From the start of his career, he has been drawn to the cutting edge mentality of the tech world. While he certainly isn’t turning his back on the industry where he found his footing, he’s increasingly interested in branching out. Most recently, he has embarked on the pursuit of launching his own company. A venture focused on contract manufacturing and branding, Leachman will call on his previous professional experiences in this new leap.
Entrepreneurial Motives and Mentality
Colby Leachman seeds his entrepreneurial motivation in an outlook he’s developed on business as a whole. In his professional view, the concept of business shapes more than just an economic landscape — it also solidifies a societal landscape. The proof of this notion isn’t hard to tap into. It’s no surprise that major brands often nestle themselves in cultural corners of society. According to Leachman, this concept is precisely what makes those brands ‘major’ in the first place. A company’s value in a market, he explains, is weighed not only in terms of economic output. Rather, the value is established in terms of economic, social and environmental metrics as expressed in tandem with each other.
Economic + Social + Environmental Metrics = The Ultimate Formula
With the launch of his first independent start-up, Leachman aims to put this formula into action. His understanding of this entrepreneurial mentality isn’t something he’s concocted overnight. The viewpoint is one that he’s developed throughout his experiences as an employee of various tech start-ups, the likes of Evenly (since acquired by Square) and Treez Inc.
Leachman is currently setting the foundation for his start-up, which will represent both individuals and businesses. The entrepreneur enthusiastically looks forward to taking the reins and launching his innovative ideas into reality.
