Interview with Dr. Brian Kent
It was an honor and a pleasure to interview Dr. Brian Kent for my new book, "Leveling Up in Entrepreneurship". Brian is a great example of someone with a true entrepreneurial spirit. After twenty years serving our country in the US Army, he started K3 Enterprises in 2005 to provide consulting and contracting services to the defense industry. K3 Enterprises appeared on the Inc 5000 list in 2011 and its international division was acquired by Fulcrum in 2017. Brian then worked with Fulcrum to grow its international division from $6m to $100m in two years until it was acquired by Huntington Ingalls, a publicly traded corporation. Brian was able to share a number of anecdotes and insights on the challenges associated with growing companies of different sizes. I look forward to including his story in my chapter on 'growth entrepreneurs'.
