LSE Generate Accelerator Programme (GAP) is an annual accelerator run by LSE Generate, the entrepreneurship centre of the London School of Economics.

This July, GAP will be celebrating its third cohort in this finale to the 2022 programme. The LSE Generate team spent the first half of the academic year searching long and hard for the best early-stage impact-driven startups in the LSE network. After rounds of selection, they found their top 10 and put them through a 12-week accelerator programme where they’ve worked with experienced Entrepreneurs-in-Residence, experts and mentors from the LSE community.

On the 15th of July 2022 you are invited to join them in person as they conclude the programme with this Demo Event where each team will be pitching their businesses live at one of the largest venues on the LSE campus. Hear from these 10 startups focused on solving real problems in a range of sectors including HealthTech, FinTech and EdTech.

If you can’t join for this event in-person LSE Generate will be hosting a virtual Showcase Event on July 18th for which tickets are available here.


You will hear about LSE Generate and GAP, listen to an exciting keynote speaker and hear from each of their startups. Each team will have 5 minutes to pitch.
