About Us
Les Makepeace - Managing Principal

A twenty year Navy veteran, Les spent the first half of his Navy career as a carrier pilot and warfare specialist, and the last half designing, building, testing and deploying the advanced hardware and software solutions demanded by increasingly technology dependent customers.

In industry, Les has provided strategic consulting to the federal government, Fortune 500 multi-national businesses, growing middle market companies, and start ups.  Entrepreneurial at heart, the common thread is how best to position the enterprise to take advantage of where the market is headed in a cost constrained environment.  

Although primarily focused on businesses with technology and manufacturing components, companies with the ability to create strategic differentiation in future markets are who Les most enjoys working with.  Les' clients include companies with branded B to C offerings aimed specifically at exploiting market trends.

Les is a Director of the Colorado Nanotechnology Alliance,  and Adjunct Faculty at the University of Denver, Daniels College of Business, specializing in entrepreneurship, leadership, and strategy.  Les has a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics from the University of Maine, a Master of Science in Mathematics and a Master of Science in Astronautics from the Naval Postgraduate School, and his Master of Business Administration from the Daniels College of Business, University of Denver.
