Armen Orujyan

Armen OrujyanArmen Orujyan, Ph.D., runs Athgo International, a nonprofit that engages young entrepreneurs in a sustainable, eco-friendly manner. Dr. Orujyan cites his family's move to the United States in the late '80s as an eye-opening moment. He didn't have anything handed to him growing up, and being immersed in a culture full of freedoms, he felt compelled to give back. He feels today's entrepreneurs are critical to tomorrow's successes. "Athgo came into existence to give opportunities to people like myself," Dr. Orujyan says. "I needed a support group to help me expand my knowledge and my know-how."
