We were deeply saddened to learn that Khaled Bichara, one of Oxide’s angel investors, died in a car accident in Cairo on Friday night. Those of us who have known Khaled for years have known him to be a bold investor who appreciated hard technical problems – and also a profoundly decent person, who cared deeply for his family, his companies, and his country. Khaled’s stories of kindling entrepreneurship in Egypt were inspiring to any who heard them – and served as a reminder of the reponsibility that we all have to our broader communities.

Their stories have captivated us all and kept us wanting more, we can’t wait to share them with you!
