I hold the Marie and Alain Philippson Chair of Global Entrepreneurship at Solvay Brussels School jointly with a Distinguished Haas Entrepreneurship Faculty Fellowship at University of California, Berkeley. I am also Mizuho Securities Endowment Visiting Professor of Venture Capital at Kyoto University. During the past two decades, I have held multiple academic, executive, and policy-related positions including at Harvard Business School, Harvard Kennedy School, MIT Sloan School, UC Berkeley, and NBER. Much of my work examines the ways in which financial intermediaries and institutional organizations impact the nature of innovation and entrepreneurship. I also work with companies and governments worldwide on the development of new ventures and transformations for sustainable growth. Earlier in my career, I was founding Chair & CEO of Bilkent Technology, Healthcare, and Power Group. I have served as director, advisor, trustee, and as board member at several companies and non-profit organizations. I was awarded a Harvard University Fellowship to conduct my doctoral and post-doctoral studies jointly at Harvard Kennedy School and Harvard Business School.
