Salem Alsanousi

I am a first-year Ph.D. student in strategy and entrepreneurship at London Business School.

Before pursuing graduate studies in 2019, I worked at The Avenues, one of the largest malls in the middle east. Since 2016, I have been running, with my co-founders, a startup specializing in construction and interior design.

I hold a BSc in civil engineering from Kuwait University and an MBA specializing in entrepreneurship and corporate innovation from Kelley School of Business, Indiana University.

My research interests are broadly within strategy and entrepreneurship. I am interested in entrepreneurial mobility, startup hiring, and financial resource acquisition.

Outside academia, I enjoy spending my time with my wife Wajd (Jude). I also enjoy cycling, running, and recently got into playing padel.
