The program, launched in 2002, recognizes individuals who exemplify the American entrepreneurial spirit – individuals who, by their creativity and determination, have established and nurtured successful business ventures.
Mr. Dekel, a real estate investor whose latest venture, SetSchedule, is revolutionizing the way that real estate agents connect with potential clients, has an extensive entrepreneurial background. He has worked in finance, real estate, technology, and even dabbled in the movie industry. He has managed millions of dollars in investor capital, written billions in business transactions, and has held multi-million-dollar real estate portfolios. The Excellence in Entrepreneurship recognition is only the latest example in ways in which he has been regarded by his community as a true innovator and entrepreneur to watch.
"Institutions like the Orange County Business Journal should be applauded for their efforts to bring awareness and momentum to our community's startups and business owners," Says Roy Dekel. "The candidates nominated for the Orange County Business Journal for Excellence in Entrepreneurship are among some of the best and brightest in our community, and I am an honored to be recognized among them."
