Christmas is coming soon.
Here’s the idea I got:
– What if our alumni community could support the entrepreneurs who also graduated from London Business School?
– What if we had a list of all the LBS alumni entrepreneurs who run ventures that sell products that are suitable as Christmas gifts so we can support them? (And also have great gifts for Christmas.)
We all want to find great gifts for the people we love.
So why not buy gifts from companies started by friends, classmates, and other LBS alumni who have started their own company?
This is a great way to support and reward bravery, innovation, and entrepreneurship.
What to do: Find the perfect Christmas gifts
I reached out to the School to source a list of ventures that offer products that can be great Christmas gifts.
The whole list is available here.
If you are still looking for Christmas gifts, have a look at the list. You may find great ideas and you’ll also be supporting entrepreneurship at LBS.
PS: The list isn’t exhaustive so feel free to share more names.
PS2: I hosted the list on my blog as it was the best way I found to control the formatting and make sure that it shows up well on any device.
