Mentoring

We provide access to a network of mentors with diverse experience of entrepreneurship that are willing to give their time and expertise to support our students' endeavours. We have also partnered with Gettwoit, a business set up by an LSE alumnus to facilitate this process.

You can also book a one–to–one appointment with Generate's careers consultant, on Wednesday mornings to discuss any entrepreneurial queries you might have.

Given the impressive pool of talent that LSE has to offer, we would like to offer students and alumni an opportunity to share their thoughts, ideas and ambitions with a wider entrepreneurial community via the Generate blog.
