I’m currently building Hurone AI, a MedTech startup headquartered in Seattle, Washington.


The vision for Hurone was born after my favorite aunt died of colorectal cancer in Nigeria. Her diagnosis, treatment and death opened my eyes to the gaps in cancer care that are the unfortunate reality for people in underserved populations around the world. 


To solve this problem, Hurone AI is building culturally sensitive artificial intelligence applications to bridge the gaps in cancer care and make high quality care accessible to people all over the world.


I’m uniquely passionate about this vision because of my aunt, and because I believe in the power of technology and artificial intelligence to improve health outcomes around the world.
