Social Entrepreneurship Impact Fund


We know the world needs socially responsible leaders and innovators: people whose big ideas can create positive changes in society.

Shaping the world?

The Marshall Institute at LSE works to improve the impact and effectiveness of private action for public benefit. Our work informs and coordinates the efforts of citizens, researchers, private sector organisations, and social entrepreneurs who are working to tackle the world’s most pressing challenges. We equip the foremost figures in the field, and the leaders of the future, with the knowledge they need to put philanthropic funding and social endeavour to best use.

LSE Generate supports entrepreneurial students and alumni to build a socially responsible business, in the UK and worldwide. It offers a programme of events, funding opportunities and courses to support LSE innovators at whatever stage of their entrepreneurial journey. The Generate team provides the infrastructure to help build, develop and scale ideas, in line with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. An example of LSE Generate’s impact is elleSE, our pioneering programme aimed at young women entrepreneurs who are creating global impact businesses across the world.
