One-to-one entrepreneurship consultations

If you’d like to discuss your entrepreneurial ideas or need advice about starting up or growing your business, we have one-to-one appointments with a careers consultant at 9.30am on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings. It may be that we can answer your query straightaway and allow you to move on with your project, or we may refer you to someone that specialises in your business sector. Either way, we encourage you to book an appointment consultation on CareerHub and come and speak to us.

Generate mentoring programme

Our industry-specific pool of alumni entrepreneurs are available to deal with one-off queries or to work with you over the longer-term to ensure that you have all the resources at your disposal to help you launch and develop a successful start-up.

We will be holding weekly sector-specific mentoring sessions on Friday lunchtimes during term-time covering numerous industries including FinTech, food/beverage, education and social enterprise and you can sign up to these meetings on CareerHub.

For longer-term mentoring matching please sign up to Get Two It to browse through our sector experts and to select a mentoring partner for you and your project.

Winners of our funding competitions will also be set up with a selected mentor as part of their winners package.

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.

Start your entrepreneurial adventure!

office-614273_1280Ten years ago, everyone wanted to be in a band. These days, being in a startup is the cool thing to do. “Startup” is the new buzzword in London, with the Evening Standard regularly showcasing tech platforms and “hackathons” a daily occurrence in the city. Apparently, if you don’t have an idea for a new lifestyle app, there’s something very wrong with you!

An entrepreneurial approach to the workplace is also becoming common and graduates are increasingly being employed by entrepreneurs looking to grow their startups quicker than you can say “please not another Dragon’s Den episode on TV!”.

If you think an entrepreneurial adventure could be for you, consider the following ways to gain experience in the field:

  1. Join an accelerator programme: This nine-week summer programme enables you to develop an idea with lots of support and mentoring eg. citystarters, bethnalgreenventures
  2. Intern with a new startup: If you can’t see a job advertised at a startup you’d like to work with, just “drop them a line” highlighting your availability and enthusiasm!
  3. Develop your own business idea: There are plenty of grants and competitions that can help finance early-stage projects
  4. Get an intrapreneurial internship: Before you “take the plunge” and go solo with your own business, why not secure some experience in a larger corporate organisation that has a strong entrepreneurial work ethic?
  5. Take a summer course: Learn a new skill with a summer course or check out the many free online resources that are available

Some great websites where you can look for ad-hoc placements include www.enternships.com, www.workinstartups.com, www.ukstartupjobs.com, www.escapethecity.org and www.entrepreneurhandbook.co.uk. There’s also our job portal on LSE CareerHub.

We look forward to seeing you very soon – possibly at a trendy startup café or “hackathon”!
