Tito Ovia is the only Nigerian woman on the 2019 edition of the Forbes 30 Under 30, an annual list chronicling the brashest entrepreneurs across the United States and Canada.
Listed under the Healthcare section, 25-year old Tito is a co-founder of Helium Health, a holistic hospital management software that helps healthcare institutions digitize their operations and patient records.
Tito is a public health enthusiast passionate about improving the quality of healthcare in Nigeria. Her passion led her to co-founding Helium Health, which is used by 5,000 doctors, with data from 500,000 patients across West Africa.
Prior to co-founding Helium Health, Tito gained invaluable experience in the public health field from working with organizations such as Orbis in 2011, traveling to Mongolia for her work there.
She also worked at the Lagos State AIDS Control Agency after returning from the UK where she had studied biomedical science.
Tito never planned to do tech but following her work with the Lagos State AIDS Control Agency, and her experience in a third world country like Mongolia, she realised that technology could help fill a lot of gaps in the Nigerian healthcare industry.
Through Helium Health, Tito, alongside her co-founders, are improving outcomes for healthcare service delivery in Nigeria.
