BUSINESS

What We Do

The Business division provides insight into careers outside of banking and finance by hosting speakers from various industries with a focus on technology. Through the London Startup Fair and talks from various speakers, our members and students from London universities were able to gain valuable insight into opportunities in industries they may not have considered.
