Glen Homan believes that useful, innovative ideas are often lost, and conceived of WikiIdea to solve that problem. An experienced entrepreneur, Homan founded PaperCardShop.com, a retail ecommerce site offering a curated collection of fine greeting cards. Glen has a patent on technology that empowers online shoppers to browse greeting cards 5x faster than in stores or at websites without the technology. Earlier, Glen bought a nearly bankrupt chain of galleries selling prints, posters and custom framing. He turned the company around, expanded, and sold it to a public company. Homan has an MBA from the Harvard Business School and a BA from Yale University.
