Sir Alan Budd: remembering a distinguished career in economics and public life
London Business School has partnered with a preventative hygiene solutions business founded by social entrepreneurs Anand Iyer and Samr Calcutawala from the LBS Sloan class of 2020.
Anand and Samr quickly responded to the pandemic by creating innovative, sustainable hygiene solutions such as automatic hand sanitising stations, customised reusable protection masks and tech-solutions for businesses. PreSols, their London based business, stepped up to meet supply shortages in essentials.
Recently the school has undertaken significant work to ensure that campus is safe for staff and faculty, as well as students and participants returning in September.
Several measures have been adopted including social distancing, enhanced hygiene, one-way systems and protocols for occupancy, cleaning and catering.
Across all campuses (London and Dubai), LBS-branded, sensor-based, touch-free floor standing and countertop hand sanitising dispenser stands will be installed to safeguard the community and reduce the spread of germs and risk of illness.
Anand commented: “It has been a wonderful experience to use our classroom learning to build PreSols with sustainability, ethics and agility at the core. We have developed a strong proposition for corporates and aspire to add value through our products and solutions”.
Samr added: “We are glad we are able to play a part in reassuring businesses in a vulnerable phase of COVID-19 and are dedicated to providing pre-emptive measures to improve nationwide containment efforts”.
PreSols supports NHS Charities Together (registered charity no. 1186569) by donating 1% of all sales in the UK to support the charity’s activities.
