I aim to tackle goal 3, improving health and well-being, in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). I try to help in decreasing the huge amount of money that the world has to pay for non-communicable diseases. It will reach 3.5 trillion USD in 2030. I designed a 360-degree strategy through global market research of digital health solutions. I developed an approach that will customize and personalize the patient's experience. The strategy covers monitoring, training & education, lifestyle management, prevention of complications, emergency management, online coaching, online communities, and remote medical consultation.
My trials to be universal entrepreneurship pushed me towards leaving my comfort zone and trying to do the same. For many years now, I have been challenging myself to work systematically to find the root cause of a problem and address it. I have worked in pharmaceuticals, environmental health, public health, digital health and research. All these efforts were accompanied by years of hard studying of two post-grad diplomas and a master in public health, quality of healthcare reform and ehealth after my bachelor of pharmacy. I have been successful in what I do but yet have not build my own business.
Finally, I got my honor to be accepted for the next MIT boot camp in Japan next month Japan next month (March 23-29th, 2019). It is an intense week-long new ventures leadership programs. Innovators come from around the world to learn from MIT faculty and MIT- trained mentors. The Bootcamps are a key component in MIT’s global strategy and focusing on shaping the future of education and learning. There are 381 Bootcamp participants from 70+ countries. Collectively they have launched over 100 new ventures raising over $36 million. Five Bootcampers were selected for Forbes 30 under 30.
The devaluation and economic situation in my country Egypt is prohibiting me from getting closer to reach my goal. I am accepted in the MIT bootcamp, however, I am not in a financial status that allows me to pay the fees. Putting in consideration that I am working as a technical officer in a minister’s office. I have to secure in total $12,500-13,000. It is divided into tuition fee $11,000, (the first $3,000 before the 15th of February and $8,000 before the 15th of March 2019), in addition to the today cost of flight tickets ($650-1750), accommodation ($122), pocket money ($300) and the visa to Japan. My current salary is 5,000 EGP which is equal to 305.5 $ which makes it impossible for me to secure it myself. I am requesting your sponsorship in this regard. The impact of the bootcamp is proven.
My personal challenge for the year is to start a Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP); my entrepreneur venture, and build my own dream. In exchange to sponsorship, I will be your advertisement material in the bootcamp, I well report back, I will document the experience, I will coordinate for a Bootcamp in my country or my region to raise capacities, I will transfer the knowledge and I will help in mentoring other entrepreneurs.
Looking forward to your reply.
