Salim founded 5 startups, his early successes ironically funding his later failures. He founded Leancamp, which connected Lean Startup, UX and business models; and now runs across two continents. He founded Village Accelerator, a programme that empowers some of the world's poorest tech founders. He has directed projects for Alex Osterwalder (Business Model Canvas), Nestle and JWT, and lectured at UCL and Oxford. He's also handsome.
