Khalid Daoud

VP Business Development

A corporate executive as well as an entrepreneur, Khalid throughout his career has sought to identify and target specific companies and work strategically with these international organizations to bring their products and or services to the MENA region. They have spanned a number of industries that have included alternative energy, commodity trading, security and surveillance, broadcast and media, ICT technology, medical devices, to name a few. In and through those successes other opportunities were uncovered which led to the expanding of his role into other markets which included Europe, South America, and China.

He has created the strategy and business development approaches in conjunction with his company’s overall marketing, PR, and social media efforts.   In his dealings over the years Khalid has been fortunate to work with an international network of diverse and influential individuals and groups who are involved in the government as well as the corporate and private sectors. Over his career he has served on a number of boards and speaks Arabic as well as English. Khalid attended the University Of Cincinnati and lives in Cincinnati Ohio with his wife and children.

We Believe

Open Therapeutics crowdsources orphan and dormant therapeutic intellectual properties (IP) to scientists around the world. The goal is pushing forward research that ordinarily would not generate a public value while particularly helping underserved scientists to collaborate.

How open science helps researchers succeed
Open access, open data, open source, and other open scholarship practices are growing in popularity and necessity. However, widespread adoption of these practices has not yet been achieved. One reason is that researchers are uncertain about how sharing their work will affect their careers. We review literature demonstrating that open research is associated with increases in citations, media attention, potential collaborators, job opportunities, and funding opportunities. These findings are evidence that open research practices bring significant benefits to researchers relative to more traditional closed practices.
