Loulou Khazen is a young entrepreneur, startup consultant and investor who founded Nabbesh in 2011. Nabbesh is the Middle East & North Africa’s first and largest online freelance marketplace connecting businesses across the world with experienced and high quality talent from the region. The purpose is empowering the region’s talented, educated and connected youth by becoming the “go to” platform for finding thousands of freelance opportunities and securing the flow of payments across borders.

She says about her company:” Start-ups have to hire freelancers on a regular basis and normally need a lot of support when it comes to talent, and early stage start-ups don’t have the money to hire someone on a full-time basis. Entrepreneurs can benefit from this, and have access to this talent.”

Aside from running her company, Loulou is a partner of Kickstart Studio in Dubai, which is network of entrepreneurs and technology experts on a mission to help businesses and entrepreneurs build fantastic digital products.

She was the winner of The Entrepreneur in 2012, which is TV show crated by DU Telecom And Dubai One TV.
