Students spread entrepreneurship

Business event at the LSE to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs

Students are jumping on the entrepreneurial bandwagon. Next week the first entrepreneurship conference to be organised by students at the London School of Economics is taking place, which aims to analyse how to turn an idea into a thriving business.

Bringing together over 200 students from around the world, the event on Thursday November 11, will be led by high profile speakers, including co-founder of Betfair, Edward Wray, founder of The Big Issue, John Bird MBE, and Lord Karan Bilimoria CBE, DL, founder of Cobra Beer. The day-long conference will also include lectures, panel discussions and networking sessions for participants and attendees to meet and discuss the day’s topics.

Throughout the conference at the Freemans Hall, Great Queen Street in London, the audience will have access to industry-specific advice from some of the most influential minds in business, and will be given valuable insight into the current issues within the business community.

All profits from the event will be donated to The Microloan Foundation, which provides women in sub-Saharan Africa with small loans to help them establish and run a business.
