We continue to add new events to our schedule throughout the year, so please keep checking Events page and don't forget to follow us on Twitter (@LSEGenerate) and Facebook (lsegenerate) to ensure that you are up to date with entrepreneurial activity at LSE and elsewhere.

Coding workshops

A strong understanding of technology and the ability to understand the basics of programming are becoming increasingly indispensable in many workplaces and roles, both here in the UK and across the globe. Technical capabilities are often sought by recruiters, especially in the startup sphere.

With this in mind, we are offering you the opportunity to develop coding skills across the year through a series of beginners and advanced coding classes run for women and bootcamp weekends and app development lectures for all students. We will also be holding networking opportunities to help you meet experts in the programming field, including our friends from SAP and Deloitte Digital.

Networking events

Generate seeks to bring students, alumni, investors, and entrepreneurial experts together with the aim of encouraging idea generation and collaboration. While it is our hope that student entrepreneurs will view every meeting and event as a potential networking opportunity, over the year we will hold a series of specific sessions, including treks, off-site visits and informal gatherings which focus on partnering students with relevant contacts, be that coding experts, marketing specialists or indeed parties with access to funding.

We will also offer you the opportunity to meet with students and alumni from other Universities to complement your skillsets and increase your entrepreneurial network here in London.

Legal clinics

We have partnered with technology & IP lawyer Manos Vranakis, who has worked with vendors and buyers of technology products & systems - from enterprise software businesses like Apigee (Google), buyers like Wm Morrisons plc, to SMEs and funded tech start-ups.

He is also a co-founder of Jotup (Research Semantics), an NLP tech start-up where he works on building its technology & content ecosystem and partnerships. Manos will be on hand to assist entrepreneurs with any legal enquiries they have related to their businesses and will be holding a series of legal clinics, talks and mentoring opportunities over the next year.  

Site visits and treks

Over the course of the year we will be arranging off-site visits, national and international treks. In the past, these have included trips to startup hubs as well as the innovation departments of multinationals.

We aim to connect students with alumni enrtepreneurs networks across the world, offering an insight into how different innovative ecosystems works and encrouageing participant to engage and collaborate with other entepreneurs. To date, we have visited companies and alumni in the UK, China, Silicon Valley, Berlin and Copenhagen and are looking forward to our next trip!
