INNOVATE & CO - CREATE
LSE’s Social Innovation Lab was launched in 2007 as a hub for evidence-based research on management and business model innovation. Since then it has grown into a platform for our global and local partners to co-create and share evidence-based knowledge on designing, managing, and scaling up context-sensitive social innovations – aimed at poverty reduction and increasing basic human freedoms.
The LSE Social Innovation Lab established a new focus on social entrepreneurship
Students, entrepreneurs and professionals trained from over 70+ countries
Research grants received to fund ongoing research projects in emerging markets
Strategic partners from over 20 countries in the social, corporate and government sector
Through our multi-disciplinary research projects, we co-create evidence-based knowledge with our ecosystem partners. We design, develop and disseminate knowledge through Bachelors, Masters and executive courses, as well as through pro-bono consulting projects. Read more...
Courses for a global group of young, aspiring entrepreneurs with much passion but little work experience. Interested in social impact initiatives.
This research explores what motivates slum teachers to go beyond the call of duty, and the positive impact their efforts are having on the students and the broader community. More broadly, we study how, and under which conditions, ecosystems of organisations specialising either in designing innovative solutions or in scaling, provide high-quality, low-cost education for millions of kids; reducing poverty and increasing basic human freedoms.
We explore trajectories of a cohort of 500 early-stage women entrepreneurs in Lagos and Abuja, participating in a multi-stage, innovative group-based training programme on financial and entrepreneurial management skills. We investigate the role of micro-organisational processes and behaviours, for instance, around learning, entrepreneurial proactivity and networks, and their implications for the focal enterprises and for the entrepreneurs themselves.
We focus on entrepreneurs at iHub in Nairobi, one of the leading incubators for IT entrepreneurs in Africa. We study the entrepreneurs at various growth stages, to explore how, and under which conditions, they will most effectively pivot, with a view to enable further growth, employment creation, and better performance. Our focus is on micro-organisational processes, cognition and reactive vs. proactive learning behaviours at various start-up stages.
