Hi, I'm Salim, a tech entrepreneur and educator. I'm the founder of Source Institute, which designs peer learning programmes for fast-changing, multi-disciplinary topics.

I also started Africa's largest dedicated tech entrepreneurship course, Europe's first entrepreneur-led education company , and a global community that developed The Lean Startup movement.

My work has been used at Seedcamp, Techstars, Oxford Univsersity, UCL, Imperial College, Unilever, and the UK Royal Academy Of Engineering.

I write about peer learning, humanitech, and privacy. You can get my writing by email.
