About Generate

Given the precariousness of the current job market both here in the UK and globally, students are looking further than the traditional career paths and are exploring more innovative alternative solutions to their job search.

Generate consists of an interactive skills development programme and an exciting series of networking events which, together, offer a unique platform from which students can learn, market test their ideas, and identify key relationships within their immediate and wider entrepreneurial community.

For those who are considering social enterprise as a potential career path there is a brand new scheme that focuses solely on this field. LSE Careers will be working closely with a dedicated team at UnLtd to provide funding and support specifically for social entrepreneurs.
