We’re really excited that CEN is one of the partners for the annual Sparks conference at LSE is coming up at the end of this month.
Sparks is the UK’s largest student-run entrepreneurship conference in the UK. Since 2010 over 50 global business leaders, founders and CEOs have spoken at the event.
More than 450 entrepreneurial students are expected to be there from universities around the world. Going is a great way to gain insight, network and maybe even meet the person with whom you’ll found the UK’s next unicorn venture.
There is a great line up of keynote speakers this year including:
- Vince Cable MP -Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills 2010- 2015;
- Russell Hall, co-founder of Hailo;
- Lord Karan Bilmoria, founder & Chairman, Cobra Beer;

- Alan Giles, non-Executive Director of the Competition & Markets Authority, Rentokil Initial Plc and the Perpetual Income and Growth Investment Trust;
- Karen Hanton, founder of TopTable;
- Judy Naake, founder, St Tropez;
- Zia Yusuf, CEO and co-founder of Velocity; and
- Andrew Heath, co-founder and Managing Director of Alphasights.
There will also be panel discussions on how to get VC funding for your startup and how to be an entrepreneur in a corporate position.
If all that isn’t tempting enough, you can also join workshops led by prominent entrepreneurs including Yasmina Siadatan, who won the fifth series of The Apprentice and former Google and Twitter executive, Chris Chabot.
Tickets cost just £25 for students and £30 for professionals. The event will be held at LSE’s campus, next to Holborn tube station, all day on Sunday 28 February.
