Kasem Mohsen is the facilitator for this course. He is a data scientist by trade and a serial entrepreneur by passion. He has been a part of over 25 startups from the ideation phase to bootstrapping, fund raising, acquisition and everything in-between.
Kasem began his career in 2003 working as a data scientist for the US Navy, where he focused on human and organizational performance. He stood up some of the very first digital dashboards in the DoD and in 2006 he moved to London, UK to work with data teams at the Ministry of Defence.
In 2009, he returned to the States and joined his first startup team based in Raleigh-Durham, NC. The company, TheraSim, built and successfully launched a web-based patient simulation platform for doctors. After raising multiple rounds of funding TheraSim ultimately sold to WebMD in 2014.
His most recent bootstrapped startup, called Bitwater, focused on using the IoT and AI to grow protein crops using less water. This work earned the company a feature at South by Southwest Eco and an invitation to the White House in 2016 for the South by South Lawn event.
Kasem currently runs Bustelo Solutions, a business focused on helping early-stage entrepreneurs. His work includes as an advisor and fractional executive for two startups who both have a mission to scale and exit in the next 3 – 5 years.
