Sparks @ LSE is an interactive one day entrepreneurship conference at the LSE for 300-400 students led by high-profile speakers, notably successful entrepreneurs themselves, and will include lectures, panel discussions and workshops.
The LSE has a notable percentage of students who are themselves budding entrepreneurs or are interested in entrepreneurship in general. Although there are several conferences targeted at aspiring young entrepreneurs in London, this will be the first dedicated conference at the LSE on this subject.

• Inspiring the next generation of entrepreneurs,
• Encouraging LSE students to take considered risks and make the most of their intellect, education and knowledge,
• Promoting the LSE brand as synonymous with innovation, entrepreneurship and business acumen through the successful creation of a major annual entrepreneurship event,
• Raising money for Young Enterprise
