Computer System Engineering Student - MedTech
I am Khalil Liouane, a computer system engineering student at MedTech, and a passionate about entrepreneurship.
After graduating from the Pioneer High School of Kairouan, I joined the faculty of Pharmacy in Monastir. During my pharmacy studies, I invested my time in developing the regional entrepreneurial ecosystem. Indeed, I tried to launch a non-profit Ed-Tech, introduced the Hult Prize in Monastir as a Campus Director, collaborated with a local coworking space, and took part as a youth panelist in the education commission on financing global education opportunity (a program under the united nations that is working on education problems on a global scale). After two years spent in Monastir, I finally understood that pharmacy studies werent for me, and I decided to shift directions and pursue an engineering degree instead. Choosing engineering rather than Business came from my early interest in mathematics and programming where in High School, I was ranked 17th in the International Championship of Logical and Mathematical games and became a member of the national programming team.
At MedTech, I was part of different organizations like Demola and the Developer Student Club as Lead (A program supported by Google), while managing to keep up with my studies. Hard worker and always striving for excellence, I managed to be ranked first in my cohort with a 3.69/4 Cumulative GPA, benefit from a full scholarship, and be the first on the Deans List. Now, equipped with a solid technical and theoretical background, I can look at a problem from different perspectives. This keeps me pushing towards my passion: entrepreneurship. In this context, I was selected to be an entrepreneurial leadership educator at the African Leadership Academy and joined Decentral Magazine as a writer and editor-in-chief. My entrepreneurial path does not stop there, I am proud to be the co-founder and COO of Archivart, a startup incubated in the Founder Institute and Afkar with a mission to help artists live from their artwork.
For me joining Flat6Labs Tunis is an opportunity to better discover the Tunisian entrepreneurial ecosystem from the perspective of a leading accelerator in the region.
