The LBS Entrepreneurship Club, in conjunction with the London Business School's Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship, is committed to fostering entrepreneurship and nurturing the leaders of tomorrow who are passionate about making a positive impact in the world.
Booster was launched to bridge the gap in the ecosystem of entrepreneurial platforms that are already powered by LBS. We aim to grow the number of start-ups that are born out of LBS by providing stimulus to early-stage ventures founded by LBS students. We will be the catalyst for founders to launch ventures that would otherwise not be born.
