Salem Alsanousi

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

Before pursuing graduate studies in 2019, I worked at The Avenues, one of the largest malls in the middle east, and co-founded a startup specializing in 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 labor markets, startup hiring, startup misconduct, and financial resource acquisition.

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