Hi Katie, and thanks for an enjoyable, well-written, and concise post! Dion seems to check all the boxes of a successful entrepreneur, and I have no problem recommending him as a strong role model for would-be entrepreneurs. It’s impossible not to feel his motivation to create change, as shown through by his track record of keeping up-to-date with technology applications in education. He leverages his past experiences, and the accompanying wisdom gained, to create original products of significant social value (like the companies you mentioned above). By browsing the websites of the companies he has founded and seeing their “About Us” sections, it’s clear that Dion has founded companies with very “human” values, and employees as well as customers are well-respected. Dion’s ventures also tend to focus strongly on developing and nurturing communities, providing tools to users with which they can discuss with and learn from one another, or share their work for the benefit of all. The social value of each of Dion’s ventures is clear by a simple visit to any of his company’s websites. I think anyone, not just entrepreneurs, could benefit by studying Dion’s approach to business ventures.
