International Chapters

The go-to place for LSE student and alumni entrepreneurs, wherever they are in the world

Hola! Bom Dia! Nemaste!

Generate is going global. With over 70% of our alumni entrepreneurs operating in a post pandemic and post-Brexit world, beyond UK shores, we support our community, wherever they are in the world.

Generate’s International Chapters proactively connects, educates and inspires our alumni to build and scale impactful business for the betterment of society.

"At LSE, I became part of something much more global – I discovered the joys of being a part of an internationally diverse community"

Baroness Minouche Shafik, LSE Director

Connect

We constantly interact and listen to our entrepreneurs launching businesses in every corner of the globe – from Mumbai to Manhattan, from Laos to Lisbon. Our International Chapters leverage LSE’s extensive network of alumni peers, Ambassadors, mentors, investors, advisers and partners to equip our entrepreneurs with the tools they need to develop their socially driven ideas.

Educate

Building on Generate’s award winning initiatives, we are creating and curating a programme of activities specific to the challenges faced in different geographies. Looking to scale a fem tech business in New York? Building a green energy enterprise in Nigeria? We’ve got you covered.

Inspire

How did they do that? Hear directly from and be inspired by other Founders about how to succeed and drive forward your idea. Our welcome packs will give you everything you need to know about the entrepreneurial eco system in your area. See who you can connect with via the Generator App and during our annual International Treks.

 

 International Chapters Defined

We aim to create an international ecosystem of entrepreneurs, all striving to address and deliver on the UN SDG’s. What makes an International Chapter, we hear you ask. Let us tell you…..

1. First and foremost, it’s our Alumni entrepreneurs. An International Chapter has a significant number of alumni entrepreneurs that would benefit from Generate supported activity.

2. Location, location, location. The International Chapter is based in a geography that can demonstrate established or emerging innovation, especially involving social impact.

3. The International Chapter has potential partners who have expressed an interest in supporting the programme and a network of Angels or VC’s that are particularly attracted to the kind of start-ups our students are building.

My younger self wouldn’t have listened to any advice— but if I could talk to her I’d say it’s harder than you think. I’d say ‘Yes, this is tough, but it gets tougher. You don’t know what you don’t know, but you’re learning those things. Keep going. Wade through the darkness. Surround yourself with people further along the journey who can offer guidance and get off Tinder.
