It was a full house at last week's launch of King's Social Entrepreneurship Initiative run by King's Business School and the Department of International Development. The KCL Social Entrepreneurship Initiative is an opportunity to meet like-minded students from across King's campus and hear from guest speakers from the industry.
Guest speaker Andrea Coleman, Co-Founder of Riders for Health International, talked about her own social entrepreneurial experiences and how she got started. Coleman's speech was described by students as “an amazing story from the founder of an amazing social enterprise” and they enjoyed hearing from someone active in the field. Andrea Coleman is the winner of national and international business leadership awards so it was great to have her at Bush House talking to students about her experience.
Dr Susan Trenholm, one of the event organisers said it was great to see so many interested faces at the launch. Students in attendance were thrilled after “an incredibly inspiring evening” and for the opportunity to "further pursue their enterpeneurial dreams and make a positive impact on society ”.
Thank you to Dr Susan Trenholm, King's Business School and Professor Peter Kingstone, Department of International Development and to everyone involved for organising a successful launch.
