LebNet San Diego held its year end event on December 14th featuring Dr. Nadine Hachach-Haram, CEO of Proximie, in a fireside chat with UC San Diego Professor Shadi Dayeh. The event drew 60 attendees from the community who hailed to hear Nadine speak about her journey.  

Nadine impressed everyone with her fluency in emerging medical technologies along with her business acumen, leadership traits and genuine concern to revolutionize access to better healthcare! When asked about the conception of Proximie, Nadine revealed that “5 Billion people lacked access to safe surgery resulting in up to 18 million deaths each year. There is no bigger purpose than this to try and create a solution.”  She highlighted three successful entrepreneurs traits -  “Tenacity, courage and humility” - and added “you are only as good as the impact that you have; what drives me is the ability to touch people and change their lives.”  Her advice to the youth in tech is “to do what you love, and bridge engineering with social impact.” 

You can watch the entire riveting chat in the video below: 

During the event, George Akiki, President of LebNet, presented Nadine with the 2022 Bireme Award for Entrepreneur of the Year. This award recognizes the leader of a startup that has reached a major milestone and put the company on the radar screen of the US and global investor community. “The LebNet awards are presented to inspiring individuals who have made an impact on society and no one embodies that more than Dr. Nadine whose humility is matched only by her accomplishments,” highlighted George Akiki.

LebNet warmly congratulates Nadine and wishes for the continued success of Proximie. Proximie is a best-in-class innovative life science company that is positively impacting human health, improving equitable and global healthcare access, and saving lives. Nadine is an inspiration and a role model to all entrepreneurs, especially in our LebNet community!
