Winchester College's new entrepreneurship hub, Makyth Ventures will play host to the most promising entrepreneurs from London School of Economics for their annual LSE Generate Funding Competition Final.
The two-day programme is for aspiring LSE students and alumni who are looking to build a socially responsible business, in the UK and beyond. Held over 2 - 3 December, the event will bring together aspiring entrepreneurs from both LSE and Winchester College to hear from seasoned investors on the impact ecosystem and a selection of keynote speeches from the LSE and Winchester College communities. It will culminate in LSE Generate's pitching finale, where the most promising LSE entrepreneurs will present their businesses to a panel of judges for a chance to win up to £20,000 to develop their ventures.
Throughout the event, Winchester College pupils will have a unique opportunity to network with seasoned investors and innovators, and put all their learning from Makyth Ventures workshops into practice.
