Stephen H. Watkins

Chief Executive Officer & Chairman

Mr. Watkins is an experienced entrepreneur and founder of several successful information and business services companies; two of which grew to billion-dollar market capitalization. His efforts raising capital for those companies demonstrated the inefficient and unstructured path entrepreneurial companies must follow in the capital markets and financial community.

These experiences inspired Watkins to conceive a capital market for entrepreneurial companies and to establish Entrex. Today, he is responsible for business strategy, development of key strategic relationships, marketing strategy and marketing communications.

Watkins has been active in the US Chamber of Commerce, Fortune Small Business, and other global business forums which provide him regular opportunities to speak to entrepreneurial company CEOs about growth, financing and raising capital.
