The latest effort made by London business school is the school’s Deloitte Institute of innovation and entrepreneurship, which would benefit seven very promising graduates with a future in innovative business ventures.
The students, whom won these awards, were presented to them, based on their business pitch and the presentations of the business plan. The criterion for the winners was also favoured by support which was previously provided by the school’s incubator.
The incubator acts as a platform for talented students to launch their business ideas into more structured forms and transform into entrepreneurs. The scheme allows them to use schools facilities, the expertise of the staff and access to workshops and conferences, after they graduate and are accepted based on the eligibility criteria.
With this award the students would be provided with a year’s placement in this school’s incubator programme, along with other benefits such as; funding for the start-up, access to training programmes and workshops, networking events with angel members, brand consulting from a top branding consultancy firm, expert advice and mentoring from leading academics/experts of both Deloitte and London Business School.
