About the entrepreneur
When Ghaith made the decision to come to Sweden, he had a BA in IT engineering and a 12-year career in the field. A mixture of political events in his home country of Syria and self-reflection prompted him to seek a new home. In his research, Sweden came out on top. A scholarship from the Swedish Institute to pursue an MA followed, reinforcing his belief that this was the right move. A year later, Ghaith's conviction is even stronger. He completed his degree at Kristianstad University. His score: the highest in his class. As well as stellar academic performance, Ghaith's skills and talents were recognised by his peers and lecturers who nominated him for the Global Swede award. Earlier this year, Ghaith was presented with it by the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The motivation: Ghaith had distinguished himself in the fields of innovation, entrepreneurship and cooperation. It is those same qualities that led Ghaith to the Care of Business program with his award-winning solution, allowing patients with mobility issues to control the appliances in their surroundings using simple body movements. He is now working on turning an innovative solution into a thriving business.
