I met Dr. Deju through JFK University in Pleasant Hill, CA.  Dr. Deju is the Director of Entrepreneurial Studies at JFK, something profound and different.  Apparently, their graduates have already produced somewhere in the neighborhood of $146 million in revenue.  Pretty good considering that this department has only been open a couple years.

Dr. Deju believes that we need to focus on solutions not problems.  That, the answers to all of the planets problems lie in the minds of our new entrepreneurs.

What Dr. Deju shares with us:

  • The 3 skills necessary for an Entrepreneur
  • A famous example of how an innovative idea helped the environment in a way you wouldn't expect
  • What an 'Intersection' is and why it's important for an Entrepreneur
  • The real reason why Nuclear Power gets a bad rap

In 1980 he started consolidating engineering and environmental companies to form International Technology Corporation (now Chicago Bridge Group), moved to become CEO of URS, Inc.; President of a number of subsidiaries of Waste Management both in the US and overseas; CEO of DGL Inc.; Chairman of Isadra, Inc.; and President and COO of both Headwaters and EnergySolutions.

Currently Dr. Raul A. Deju is the Director of the Institute of Entrepreneurial Leadership and Professor of Business at John F. Kennedy University.
