The official London School of Economics acceleration programme will be launching from early 2020. If you are an LSE student or alumni with a business, you are eligible to apply to join the accelerator.
Gener8 is a 6-month intensive journey helping you to refine, develop and grow your start-up - this is an exclusive opportunity to access the best and brightest talent, speakers and knowledge at LSE.
You will be part of an LSE cohort made up of like-minded entrepreneurs, with access to acceleration-only events and mentoring opportunities.
The end of the accelerator will provide the cohort with a unique opportunity to pitch to LSE alumni angel investors, as well as giving entrepreneurs a chance to pitch for funding in front of an audience of investors. This is an essential programme that will allow LSE entrepreneurs to build and scale their business with direct access to the LSE's extensive pool of resources and alumni network
The accelerator also provides a stipend for the duration of the programme and access to fully-paid workspace.
For more information, you can access the information deck here.
The application process opens beginning of October and includes:
- Our application form which can be found via this link. You will need to upload a recent pitch deck and/or CV.
- A live pitch in front of Generate judges during January.
Details about the acceleration programme will be given to those who pass the first round of applications.
