Launch of the Entrepreneurship Lab
Thanks to a generous donation, King's College has established The King’s Entrepreneurship Lab to equip students with entrepreneurial skills and support those wishing to explore a career path in innovation, entrepreneurship and business. With an emphasis on developing sustainable and ethical projects with a positive social and environmental impact, the Lab's activities will encompass a year-long programme for King’s students including an intensive week before the academic year, an Entrepreneur-in-Residence scheme, a monthly webinar series, visiting mentors, and much more.
We are launching the King’s Entrepreneurship Lab (E-Lab) at 14.30 on the 26th September 2021 and are delighted to invite you to a panel discussion with Michael Proctor (Provost, King’s College, Cambridge), Gemma Chandratillake (KC 1997), Malcolm McKenzie (Chair of the Lab Advisory Board, KC 1977), Andy Neely (Pro-Vice-Chancellor: Enterprise and Business Relations, University of Cambridge), and Sarah Wood (KC 1992) on: "The Role of Business in Addressing Global Crises and Societal Change".
We will also introduce you to the ten undergraduate and nine postgraduate students – from a wide range of subjects including computer science, politics, genetics, and economics – who will form the inaugural cohort of the Entrepreneurship Lab programme at King’s, set to get under way on the 27th of September.
The Lab is run by co-directors Kamiar Mohaddes and Thomas Roulet, with the support of an advisory board made up of alumni Malcolm McKenzie (KC 1977), Jonathan Adams (KC 1986), Luke Alvarez (KC 1986), Penelope Herscher (KC 1979), Mervyn King (KC 1966), Stuart Lyons (KC 1962), Sheelpa Patel (KC 1995), Tim Flack (Senior Tutor), and Lorraine Headen (Director of Development).
