Since the start of this academic year, Generate has worked with and met an impressive array of commercial and social enterprises. We are really proud to present some of the best of these projects at our LSE Entrepreneur and Social Entrepreneur of the Year competition on Thursday 9 June.

Through hard work and ingenuity, each of the eight teams competing have won funding through the two most recent Generate funding competitions we have held in the past year. Drum roll please…now they have a chance to battle it out for the prestigious titles of Entrepreneur of the Year and Social Entrepreneur of the Year and extra funding! Join us during the afternoon to watch the teams pitch – you can book to come to watch the social stream pitches or commercial stream pitches via CareerHub. Make sure to visit our blog daily to read interviews from some of our competitors and funding competition winners.

The same evening, we will crown the winners at the annual Generate summer party and celebrate the successes of all those involved in the Generate programme with some nibbles and drinks. Aside from showcasing the best of LSE’s entrepreneurial talent, we will be joined by Guiseppe Mascoli, co-founder of Franco Manca, for a very special keynote speech. Put the date in your diary and RSVP to as this is one not to be missed!
