London Business School – A playground for successful entrepreneurs

We are very excited to bring you the third edition of the LBS Founders Book, featuring highly selected startups founded by both current LBS students and alumni across different investment stages.

We are proud to continue the LBS Founders Book mission – to bring visibility to the tremendous entrepreneurial talent at LBS. The London vibrant tech ecosystem, paired with the unparalleled diversity of LBS students has helped to nurture the most promising ventures. While helping talented entrepreneurs to showcase their visions, we want to give investors early access to what could become the next LBS unicorn. We are proud to play a crucial role in helping entrepreneurs to succeed during their time at LBS and beyond.

“He who knows only his own generation remains forever a child”

Inscription on History Building, University of Colorado

“London Business School has been championing entrepreneurship for over 40 years. Over that time, students have created thousands of new ventures; many resulting in brilliant businesses and all in great learning. To my knowledge (and I’ve been around a while), this is the first time anyone has created a compendium of these journeys. It’s a fantastic initiative, serving at once to celebrate our founders, tell their stories and show – if ever there were any doubt – that the School provides wonderfully fertile ground for entrepreneurial thinkers. Entrepreneurship is part discipline, part apprenticeship. Either way, we have so much to learn from those who went before us, and it is hugely rewarding to be part of a community that is so willing to support and share experiences with the next generation – and to support the Entrepreneurship Club in kicking off this first edition of the LBS Founders Book.”
