Steve McKean defines an entrepreneur as “someone who sees an opportunity or a problem to be solved and marshalls the people and resource to build a product or service to solve that problem.” Over an expansive career, he embodies that definition. His most recent success, Acceller, was built entirely for the purpose of solving a problem: Acceller negotiates bills with major telecommunications companies for their customers. He’s also working with two additional companies built on the philosophy of solving problems for customers: BillShark, a personal finance company similar to Acceller, and a robotics software company that focuses on private data.
Once you’ve gotten the entrepreneurial bug, it’s hard to resist. Starting his career as a CPA, Steve McKean soon dove into the world of entrepreneurship. He’s operated a Dairy Queen franchise, advised financial services ventures, and explored the complex world of technology and engineering. He describes his approaches to entrepreneurship on this episode of ENTREPRENEURradio’s “Inside The Entrepreneurial Mind”.
“Entrepreneurs”, according to Steve McKean, are “always looking to find a better way to do things.” To learn more, listen to his featured episode of “Inside The Entrepreneurial Mind” on ENTREPRENEURradio.
