Ian Kazi Shakil is Co-founder of Augmedix, a stealthy company building an app for medical doctors on Google’s Glass eyewear computing device. Shakil studied biomedical engineering at Duke University and then worked for Edwards Lifesciences, which makes heart valves that can be implanted without surgery.
He received his MBA from Stanford Graduate School of Business in 2012. Last summer, a friend who works at Google let him try on the Google Glass. He was instantly inspired and decided to drop everything in order to start a company that took advantage of the emerging technology.
