How to create an accessible healthcare option for everyone with Jalil Allabadi, founder of Altibbi
Today’s episode is with Jalil Allabadi who co-founded Altibbi in 2011 with a mission to provide accessible healthcare to everyone. During the past 8 years, Altibbi has grown to become the largest digital health provider in the Arab world with +2 million pages of content, 24/7 Telehealth service in 12 Arab countries and +500,000 daily users.
Jalil is an Endeavor entrepreneur since 2014, member of the Entrepreneurs Organization, member of the Board of Trustees at Royal Health Awareness Society and most recently was one of 17 global leaders to receive the 2019 Schwab Award.
I was so inspired by Jalil’s path to building Altibbi, and the road he took to become one of the leading healthcare platforms in the region.
We talk about the following and much more:
✅ His family history in the healthcare space, and his family’s work in creating an Arabic medical dictionary
✅ Why he decided to continue in this ecosystem, but use technology to help grow and scale it
✅ The moment he realized he had product market fit, and how he connects with his audience
✅ The road from bootstrapping to fundraising with investors
Stay tuned for upcoming episodes with startup founders in the Middle East and North Africa!
