Make an Impact
Our consultants engage in meaningful work that helps start-ups maximize their resources, to operate efficiently and to build capacity for growth.
Start-ups usually lack the time and resources to study the vast amounts of relevant theoretical insights that could be put into practice to boost their growth. This resource-constrained nature of start-ups means our advice is valued more by our clients, and allows us to combine extensive backgrounds of knowledge in strategy, management, entrepreneurship, and various other sciences taught at the LSE to deliver impactful advice.
Whether you're starting or continuing your professional learning journey, all our roles offer real-world experience and high-quality training to suit your needs.
