Channeling Wisdom

Mildred Hastbacka is Founder and Managing Member of Prakteka LLC, a consulting firm focused on managing critical issues at the interface of technology and business.

She has successful and diverse managerial and P&L experience in both public and privately held companies, including a Fortune 100 manufacturing and marketing company, a global professional services firm, and a technology development start-up company. Her consulting clients include Fortune 50 companies, private equity firms, and corporate venture capital funds. She has helped her clients solve such problems as whether and how to invest in high growth, high value emerging technologies; valuation of large and complex product and intellectual property (IP) portfolios for licensing and M&A transactions; and development/commercialization of value-add, proprietary products in targeted user/customer benefit areas.

Channeling Wisdom, A Practitioner’s Guide to Effective Mentoring in the Workplace, reflects and incorporates her experiences as a mentor and as a mentee, accumulated over her decades-long career. Formally acknowledged by her work colleagues as an effective mentor and manager, she has been recognized for her “unique ability to bring humor, leadership and respect to the work environment.” She is considered “an exceptional consultant who gets right to the heart of the problem, and her appreciation of those working with her is abundantly clear…best of all, whether morale is waning or soaring, she is equipped with one-liners to keep the team laughing.”

Mildred has a Ph.D. from Brown University, a B.S. from M.I.T., and a M.S. in Taxation from Northeastern University, where she was inducted into Beta Gamma Sigma, the international business honor society.
