The LSE funding competition

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.

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.

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.
