Hameed was born and raised in Central Uganda. After graduating from Makerere University with a degree in Veterinary Medicine, he dedicated himself to protecting wildlife and habitats. His expertise is in eco-friendly community initiatives, animal production, economic conservation and wildlife medicine.

Hameed’s vision for human health, environment and the economy made him a strong influence at Einstein Rising. Throughout his life, he has seen ambitious African entrepreneurs’ dreams crumble due to insufficient support. He saw an opportunity to change that with ER.

His favorite motto is “The same sun that melts the wax hardens the clay”.
