Our third feature to promote businesses of DECedOut members is on Debra Amidon and her business, ENTOVATION International Ltd.

Prior to joining Digital, Debra M. Amidon – now founder and CEO of ENTOVATION International Ltd – advised a student entrepreneur organization. By 1991, she was making presentations on entrepreneurial management; and last year, she sponsored the World Summit on Innovation and Entrepreneurship (WSIE). Her virtual global network – notably the E100 – is comprised of 160 from 60 countries. She is an international author with publications in 12 languages, including The Innovation SuperHighway – now the economic development strategy for Japan. She has provided invited presentations in 35 countries; and she has been interviewed for the media around the world, such as the BBC, Inovacion, CORDIS – the press arm of the European Union, Effective Executive (India) and this month is featured as ‘The Knowledge’ in Inside Knowledge magazine.

Her Knowledge Innovation® methodologies have been the cornerstone for China’s development program; and now India is following suit. She has convened Roundtables in the US, Finland, Mexico, Spain, and most recently in Muscat. Oman. She’s served on the faculties of IPADE, Tartu University, the Banff Centre for Management and consulted to MIT and Columbia. Other clients include Fortune companies such as American Express and Siemens, several oil and gas companies (e.g., Exxon, Mobil, BP and PDVSA), societal organizations (e.g., the UNDP, The World Bank) and most sustainable companies in the world, such as Novo Nordisk, a Danish pharmaceutical company. A mother of four, Debra has degrees from Boston University, Columbia University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where she was an Alfred P. Sloan Fellow.

Digital Equipment Corporation sponsored the 1st conference in the world (1987) on managing knowledge assets and intellectual capital. Amidon says, “The enigma that Digital was managerially has become the standard for knowledge-based enterprises around the globe.” She is indebted for the grounding received from colleagues which provided a unique platform into the Knowledge Economy for thousands.
