Deloitte Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship Founder Awards

The Deloitte Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship (DIIE) will host the fourth annual Founder Awards dinner celebrating and supporting entrepreneurial ventures from London Business School.


Entrepreneurship is one of the major strengths of the School and we are immensely proud of the many ventures our alumni have developed; creating sustained wealth, employment and growth.

Each year a number of students start their own venture after graduating, and often they base their business on ideas developed at the School. These ventures face an array of challenges and need all the support we can give, especially in these uncertain times.


Uniquely positioned to fulfil this role, the DIIE is pleased to host the Deloitte Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship Founder Awards where 11 of the most promising entrepreneurs graduating from London Business School (LBS) per year will win a package of support that will nurture and enable them to successfully launch their business ventures.
