“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.”
