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 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.

Entrepreneurship blog and forum

Can you create a website from scratch? Have you ever structured a business plan? Have you delivered a successful marketing campaign?

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.

Watch this space for information on how to get involved.

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.
