Bilal Qizilbash
Bilal is CEO and chief scientist for EasyKale Labs, LLC. His company pledges 2.5% of net profits to feeding the homeless, something Bilal does every Friday in Jackson, Miss., alongside volunteers for his Draw-a-Smile non-profit foundation. Another 2.5% goes to the Mississippi Coding Academies, helping at-risk kids build technology careers.

When Bilal discovered that juiced leafy kale would selectively kill melanoma cancer cells in vitro while leaving non-cancerous cells alone, he’d had a breakthrough… and a realization. The breakthrough led to a U.S. patent and continued laboratory studies. The realization was that Bilal could help humanity with a product—Bilal’s EasyKale—that makes it easy for people to add #dailykale to their diets.

Bilal has presented lectures on leadership, innovation, and his team’s cancer breakthrough at numerous conferences, most notably at the Global Health & Innovation Conference at Yale University attended by over 3,000 people. Bilal holds U.S. Patent #9919016: “Product and method of deploying kale derivatives for anti-cancer effects.” As the CEO of EasyKale Labs, he’s continuing his research into the cancer-fighting properties of kale, while offering a next-generation product for making kale consumption easier—Bilal’s EasyKale.
