Meet Dujon

Dujon is the Midwest Lead for Accenture Ventures, forming bridges between Global companies and the startup ecosystem.

He has worked within Accenture’s Innovation Architecture for the past few years. Previously, he was with the Operations Studio where he focused as a growth catalyst for Operations clientele, the $6 billion business unit that provides business process services across more than 40 industries.

Dujon has traveled, worked, and studied in 50 countries and is passionate about connecting technology, culture, and education within communities. Additionally, he is the Director of Development for Definition Theatre, the Treasurer of the Scenemaker’s Board of the Goodman Theater, and an active mentor in Chicago’s startup community. Dujon is a U.S. patent owner for a luxury luggage model as well as a classically trained baritone singer, and when he isn’t the life of the party, he enjoys running and trying new fitness classes.

“We bring a lot to the table whether we are just partnering with a startup, or whether we are investing. And, that’s what really excites me about this role.”
