Khalid Hashi

Founder

Khalid Hashi is the founder of OGOW EMR, a provider of digital health solutions designed to improve health outcomes in Somalia. The innovative concept by Khalid was recently selected as a Top Idea in OPEN IDEO’s Innovation Challenge and received funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. As an invitee in Somalia’s first ever tech summit, Khalid presented his innovation which is currently being used by medical workers in Somalia to improve health-care delivery in the country. His solution was also selected for World Humanitarian Innovation Day to spur collaboration between investors, experts and deserving projects from around the world.

Khalid was inspired to innovate after his first trip to Somalia in 2017 where he met his grandmother for the first time, and had the first hand-encounter with the condition of healthcare services in the country while accompanying her to a hospital.
