Aspect’s new flagship four-month social sciences student and alumni accelerator hosted by LSE to support and scale socially-responsible student and alumni ventures is now open for applications.

Up to twenty UK selected university student and alumni enterprises, all of whom are solving pressing socio-economic and environmental issues, will collaborate and develop their businesses over a four-month period. The new online accelerator brings together students and alumni from across the Aspect community.

Participating student acceleratees will engage in a range of fortnightly online training bootcamps hosted by both academics and practitioners from the Aspect network, complimented by tailored online resources, community outreach assignments, mentoring, workshops and a tailored speaker-series.

It will act as the first joint University Accelerator of its kind in Europe and will appeal specifically to student and alumni audiences who are looking to:

  • Address and solve identified challenges faced by social sciences entrepreneurs through a piloted curriculum designed specifically for this audience.
  • Leverage the complementary skills, networks, and academic research opportunities across the diverse Aspect community.
  • Join and benefit from a unique yet like-minded community of student entrepreneurs who are building socially impactful and responsible scalable businesses that are contributing to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, either through the socially-responsible running of the business (data ethics/transparency of the supply chain/gender parity) and/or the measurable social/environmental impact created through the business idea.
