Students often find that while they have a promising idea for a start-up they discover certain skills are missing when attempting to implement their business concept. Given the impressive pool of talent that LSE has to offer, we are creating an online forum and blog for students to share their thoughts, ideas and talent with a wider entrepreneurial community.

The concept of entrepreneurship isn’t only restricted to quirky, boutique start-ups. Despite the word being commonly associated with small setups, entrepreneurship can be found instilled in the makeup of many established multinationals and global blue-chip organisations. 

For those of you who would potentially look to be part of a larger, traditional set-up that boasts entrepreneurial flair we have organised several on-site visits, giving you the opportunity to experience for yourself a more innovative culture and business dynamic.
