About Our Founder – Celestine O. Chukumba Ph.D.:
Celestine O. Chukumba Ph.D. is the founder of CollegeDJ.net which he created as a professor at Penn State University in 2006 while teaching entrepreneurship in their Information Sciences and Technology department. Dr. Chukumba created CollegeDJ.net because he saw the college market was underserved and in 2006 record labels were still sending vinyl copies to DJs. As the internet was becoming a bigger part of content distribution, Celestine was instrumental in reestablishing the college market as a destination point for getting artists more visibility online and via traditional media.
He is the author of several papers related to technology diffusion and small business. He is a digital media mobile consultant at InterSearchMedia a company he founded in 2009. He runs a finance and economics website ToryCapital.com.
He plays several instruments and was a DJ at the University of Notre Dame where he received his Ph.D. in economics.
