Leadership Team

Brooke Wurst

Founder, CEO

After founding an HIV/AIDS education non-profit organization in remote regions of sub-Saharan Africa, Brooke invented RemoteID, the world's first fully anonymous, real-time mobile biometric data management protocol in response to the community-articulated need for more secure methods of HIV testing and counseling. She reversed the paradigm of traditional for-profit/non-profit relationships. Rather than building on her success in the for-profit world, Brooke is building on her experience working in low-resource settings and evidence-based interventions in the non-profit world to create a for-profit entity whose proceeds then sustain and re-invest in community-based organizations. She committed to bringing the RemoteID and ShareWhere platforms to market in the highest-impact verticals: health and safety, humanitarian and disaster relief, democracy participation, and workers' rights and safety.

Brooke brings more than 20 years of experience in the technology field as a writer and editor for several tech magazines. She earned a MS from Northwestern University. She studied Literature as a graduate student at Harvard University, and earned a specialization certificate in Business Strategy from the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia, holds a certificate in Impact Measurement and Management for the SDGs from the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University, and nabbed her BA with honors in Comparative Literature from the University of Pennsylvania. When not on an airplane, Brooke can be found roaming the streets looking for the best live music in whatever city, town, or village she finds herself.
