Can building a business change the world?

Support through foundership grants from Santander are providing financial security for LSE entrepreneurs as they build socially responsible businesses — guided by LSE Generate — that can eventually serve as a solution to pressing problems in the UK and worldwide.

“The Foundership and support of Santander and LSE Generate was life-changing. For the last two years I'd been juggling three to five part-time jobs to support myself. Receiving the Foundership allowed me to focus on building our social enterprise, and the progress we made once I was able to focus fully on the business was astounding.”
