Founder & CEO, Dot Health
Huda Idrees was only 12 when she started her first business, building websites using skills she learned at school in Saudi Arabia. Now 27 and a University of Toronto industrial engineering grad, she has become a tech start-up veteran with several high-profile roles to her credit. Her latest venture, Dot Health, launched in the spring. For a low monthly fee, the service provides individuals with easy online access to all of their disparate patient health records — eliminating a normally tedious and expensive process. It’s tackling a challenging problem that others have tried and failed to solve, but we think this entrepreneurial wunderkind is the right woman for the job.
