One of the students who attest to the benefits of such events is John Kent, formerly in the military sector as a paratrooper. John has seen an upturn change in his career since starting his MBA degree at London Business School, building new entrepreneurial qualities to enhance his career.
“Tech start-ups offer the chance to activate the full range of your talents and abilities. These companies reward initiative and audacity and the emphasis is on performance rather than hierarchy,” he said. “I wanted the opportunity to be a part of something special, something changing the way we shop, travel, communicate, or work.”
Commenting on one of his achievements at the school, which is a technology start-up treks organised by London Business School,
“In this space, and particularly because of the less structured recruiting practices, there is no substitute for getting out into their world and meeting people to forge connections through the LBS network,”
David Morris, Head of Corporate Sectors at London Business School’s Career Services, stated: “The London technology scene has grown with the emphasis on Tech City ‘Silicon Roundabout’ in east London over the last couple of years”. Commenting on the growth and popularity of start-ups, he continues by saying.
“With a growing number of start-up incubators, work spaces and start-up events , our students get an excellent opportunity of connecting with the next ‘hot’ start-up for career opportunities or to discuss their own business ideas.”
