Entrepreneurship in a Global Context
The London Business School Entrepreneurship Club, in conjunction with the LBS Tech & Media Club and Career Centre, organise three treks each year to major innovation hubs around the world. On treks, participating students visit the offices of major growth stage technology firms and venture capital funds. Students have the opportunity to network with professionals in the entrepreneurial ecosystems of these cities as well as connect with LBS alumni and MBA students at partner business schools.
Silicon Valley is the world's leading startup ecosystem and home to leading technology firms, thousands of startups, and one third of the world's venture capital investment. During the Silicon Valley trek, students visit the offices of leading technology firms such as Google, startups such as Robin Hood, and venture capital funds such as Kleiner Perkins Caufield Byers.
New York City
New York City is the world's second largest entrepreneurial ecosystem by funding and is rapidly growing. During the New York City trek, students visit the offices of startup unicorns like Rent the Runway, leading media companies like the New York Times, and venture builders like BCG Digital Ventures.
Tel Aviv is the world' leading entrepreneurial hub outside of the United States and has the largest venture capital investment per capita globally. During the Tel Aviv trek, students visit the offices of leading venture capital funds, accelerators, and startups while simultaneously enjoying the beautiful beaches and thriving nightlife of the city.
