A big win for Enterprise learning at LSBU
LSBU’s commitment to enterprise learning has been recognised with an award win at a global conference for entrepreneurship educators in America
The award for Outstanding Emerging Entrepreneurship Centre was presented to London South Bank University (LSBU) at the Global Consortium of Entrepreneurship Centres (GCEC) Conference 2016 in Rochester, USA.
This significant achievement celebrates LSBU's commitment to supporting students and graduates to develop their enterprise skills, and recognises the Clarence Centre for Enterprise and Innovation as a central hub for this activity across campus.
Professor Paul Ivey, Pro Vice Chancellor for Research and External Engagement, said:
“Winning this award marks an important step in our mission to become the top modern university in London.
“Last year we supported 60 start-up ventures and engaged over 5,000 students and graduates in enterprise activities. Through our interactive workshops and start-up programmes we continue to drive our University community to create and develop new ideas.
“Enterprise is vital for our students, graduates and staff. It’s not just about starting up a business. It’s about creating links with local SMEs and providing real-world learning opportunities for LSBU students and graduates, so that they can develop the skills they need to become what they want to be.”
The Clarence Centre provides a unique environment for LSBU students and alumni entrepreneurs to work alongside SME tenants, offering opportunities for skill development and start-up support.
Over 600 local SMEs have gained access to funding opportunities, consultancy services and one-to-one support. In the Business Solutions Centre LSBU students provide a free drop-in advice service for local businesses, enabling them to apply their learning to solve real-world problems. Our 65 SME tenants based in the Clarence Centre benefit from furnished offices, discounted meeting room space and access to established networks.
Gurpreet Jagpal, LSBU’s Director of Research, Enterprise and Innovation, said:
“This year was a record year for the GCEC Awards with over 90 entries from around the globe. For LSBU to be recognised in such a competitive category is a great achievement as it gives us global recognition for the work we are doing with students, graduates, businesses and entrepreneurs.”
