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.
