Introducing DR NORA KHALDI, founder of NURITAS and WOMAN OF THE DECADE …
Nuritas, the Irish digital biotech and R&D firm founded by Dr Nora Khaldi, is tipped for success in 2017 as EU funding and backing by investors (including Bono, The Edge and Salesforce CEO Marc Beniott) will help bring to market a breakthrough food ingredient – a revolutionary peptide to be exact – considered to be a world-first in diabetes prevention.
Nuritas are set to triple their workforce in 2017 after €3,000,000 in EU funding was received to support final-stage development of the novel peptide that they are currently working on. By 2020 Nuritas ingredients are set to reach one billion people.
Dr Khaldi was recently announced as ‘Woman of the Decade in Business and Leadership’ at the Women Economic Forum EU event in The Hague on January 28. This event celebrates the innovators and entrepreneurs who are making a difference in the EU and Dr Khaldi was awarded for her groundbreaking scientific research and leadership qualities.
