“It’s exciting to be on this list and be recognized alongside so many great companies,” said Brandt Page, CEO of Launch Leads. “It really is an honor.”
The Utah Valley Entrepreneurial Forum (UVEF) recognizes the best emerging companies in the state of Utah based on revenue growth and job creation. The UVEF uses these awards to help promote local companies that may become industry leaders throughout the region, state and the world. Recent winners include ZAGG, Interbank FX, Seastone, Altiris and Omniture.
The success and accolades are extremely rewarding for Brandt Page, who started Launch Leads in his living room just under 3 years ago.“Innovation was the key,” he said. “We brought to market a business that people actually needed and wanted: a way to get more leads and sales opportunities by providing a service for the thing sales people hate most: cold-calling and prospecting.”
Launch Leads, a Salt Lake City-based company founded in 2009 assists B2B companies by filling their sales pipeline with qualified leads and scheduled sales appointments. Launch’s clients consist of technology businesses throughout the United States and Canada including MarketStar, Mindshare, SEO.com, Corda and PolicyTech.Even though the company is just over two years old, Launch Leads’ CEO, Page, is already turning heads and being publicly recognized for his success.
In 2009, he was named the Emerging Executive of the Year by the Utah Technology Council. In 2010, American Express selected him to advise their national OPEN Forum Pulse on Twitter and his @BrandtPage and @LaunchSaleswere included in the Top 40 Sales People to Follow on Twitter. The last two years, 2010 and 2011, Page was elected to the vSpring Capital Top 100 Entrepreneurs list.
“It’s been a lot of hard work,” Page said. “But we’re constantly improving as we grow. We feel confident that 2012 and the years following are going to prove to be our best growth years and this award is just the beginning.”
