Generate events programme

Generate offers an interactive skills development programme and an exciting series of networking events for LSE students. You can read about the types of events we run, view all our forthcoming events and watch recordings of past events on our events page.

The LSE funding competition

In Michaelmas and Lent Terms Generate at LSE Careers runs a funding competition. Open to all students and alumni within two years of graduation, the competition gives you the opportunity to win up to £10,000 towards an entrepreneurial venture. 

In Summer Term, the winners of each competition will be invited to take part in the LSE Entrepreneur and LSE Social Entrepreneur of the Year competitions when overall winners of each category are chosen and awarded additional funding. 

For more information on this please visit the funding competition page.


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.

Guest blog

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.

If you have an entrepreneurial subject that you would like to discuss or perhaps an experience from your entrepreneurial journey you would like to share we would love to hear from you.

Book a room

Not all have startups have the luxury of securing an office when they first launch and so finding a suitable place to work on your project can difficult.  The innovation workspace is here at LSE - the Kingsway building (room 4.03), can be booked and used for your team strategy sessions, investor meetings or as a place to work on your business plan.

The room can be booked by the hour. Please complete this form to request the room.

Want to improve your public speaking, presenting, and pitching skills?

Whether we’re doing a presentation, a pitch in front of a panel, an application video, or an interview, we want to be and appear confident.

Even if we have sufficiently prepared what we want to […]
