Robert Wallace

Robert L. Wallace is an internationally-known entrepreneur, author, speaker and consultant. With more than 40 years of business experience spanning engineering, energy and IT, Bob blends decades of research with practical real-world advice to educate and inspire entrepreneurs and executives worldwide. His rags-to-riches story began in the Baltimore projects amidst poverty and racial segregation, before overcoming obstacles to establish three companies: BITHGROUP Technologies, Bithenergy, and through, EntreTeach. Now, he shares his innovative strategies for success with other corporate and community leaders through his growing library of books and other content, and through his energetic keynote presentations and training workshops. Wallace earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics at the University of Pennsylvania, and his MBA from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, where he began his research on the characteristics of successful entrepreneurs. He was also awarded a Doctorate of Humane Letters (Honorary) from Sojourner-Douglass College. Bob is a passionate community leader and devoted church elder who believes in the intersection of spirituality and business. He’s written six books on wealth creation, strategic partnerships, business spirituality, emerging markets and entrepreneurship. His books address the challenges faced by women, people of color, and entrepreneurs of all stripes from domestic and global emerging markets. Bob tells the story of these amazing people with an insightful approach that makes his writing equally compelling to large corporations with an “intrapreneurial” spirit. Politically, he also made history when he became the first independent candidate for Mayor of Baltimore to earn a spot on the ballot in 2020. Garnering close to 50,000 votes, Mr. Wallace has built a coalition that will forever change the political terrain of Baltimore City. When he’s not researching, mentoring or presenting to other business leaders, Bob enjoys spending time with his wife of 44 years, their five children and ten grandchildren.
