This, according to him, is what laid a foundation for his involvement in technology and medical research. It also helped him secure his passion as a futurist.

How did he deal with the doubts he had?

In his opinion, having a healthy sense of doubts is perfectly normal for any entrepreneur. Doubts keep businessmen on their toes. Every new idea that an entrepreneur comes up with has its own challenges. It is the mark of a good entrepreneur to deal with the challenges.

What is the toughest decision he has had to make in the recent past?

Jason Hope states that retaliating and reevaluating the proper direction to take next has been tough. Hope has recently started writing blogs for tech related companies. In those blogs, he feeds the general public with the ideas he has. The toughest decision, therefore, has been to find time to write and publish articles so that he may reach out to his target clients, telling them about what he believes in.

What does he think makes him successful?

The self-proclaimed futurist has an eye for the future. He explains that technology presents an endless array of possibilities. He works to take advantage of these possibilities to make people’s lives better. Hope adds that he enjoys his philanthropic work as he feels that it helps him focus. According to Jason Hope, success doesn’t mean that one always gets everything right. When a project goes wrong, all he does is move on to the next.

Nathaniel Ru Wants Everything To Last Longer Than Our Lives


When Nathaniel Ru was at Georgetown University in his senior year, he joined some friends in fantasizing about opening a healthy cafe at the famous school’s location in Washington D.C. They also thought such a new place should be a fun place that has easy access and low overhead. The start of their dream came when they leased a small tavern on M Street, downtown.


That was a mere six years ago. Their small first store quickly grew into a large chain of 21 farm-to-table restaurants: Sweetgreen. The food is fresh, healthy, and authentically original cuisine. As the company grew, technology became Nathaniel Ru’s increasingly helpful solution to many problems that cropped up. He and his partners have experienced a second education, after their academic days at Georgetown, in the realities of the Real World. They have all grown up into modern business executives that make a difference in their company and in turn for the whole world. Ru calls it, “The new era of marketing, globalization, analytics, and choice.


The way Sweetgreen grew up is actually a very interesting story. The owner of their first tavern space also owned an apartment building nearby where Ru and his partners were living. Ru makes it clear that he had to work on building a good relationship with that landlord, who was not at all on board in the beginning. The partners presented their business plan for what would become Sweetgreen to the property owner. She became intrigued, even though they were still young and had not quite completed college, yet, at the time. She encouraged them to find investors and an architect and then come back to her with a fully-fleshed-out business plan.


Nathaniel Ru explains that the worked furiously for over 3 weeks to find backers and an architect. He calls that landlord a blessing, because she was willing to give students, without any real business experience, a chance. He credits her decision to help them and the timing of their launch of the business with its overwhelming success. As of 2016, Sweetgreen had more than 64 stores employing over 1,700 people in many states in the United States.

Securus Technologies Replaces Inaccuracies with facts in GTL Press Release

Securus Technologies has come out to set the record straight by correcting inaccuracies in GTL’s recent press release. I noted from their corrections that indeed, there are major facts that had been misrepresented. For instance, the company has clarified that GTL mischaracterized the purpose of the latest ruling by the Patents and Appeals Board.

Enough working resources

Speaking recently, Securus CEO Richard Smith said that his company has the much needed technology to perform its duties. He also pointed out that because of the heavy investment in software development, and a much larger patent portfolio, they are well equipped to serve customers unlike what other sources want to portray. He said that GTL has refused to accept his technology challenge because they know that they definitely will be defeated.

Securus is way ahead of competitors

While pointing out that the company is out to win the technology game, Smith compared GTL to a player who scores once when his team is being routed and celebrates as if they have won. With a win-loss patent license score of 19-0, I can also agree that indeed, the company is way ahead of their competitors.

Right to file patents

The CEO says that they, just like other companies, file patents because they are the developers of technology. In fact, the company has used over $800 million in building of software and other similar products. They also have been duly approved by the relevant patents authority and so, disputes should not arise since they have a duty to protect their rights.

Securus Technologies is headquartered in Dallas and has been providing technology solutions, both civil and criminal justice for many years. The CEO also says that despite disputes such as the one that GTL is trying to create, they remain committed to fair trade practices. They, however, will do everything to protect their company from unfair accuses.
