TEL 2021-2022 Application 
Deadline: 17 October 2021

Thank you for your interest in The Entrepreneurship Lab at the London Business School. Please read the information below accurately before proceeding with the application. 


Please review the programme page for details. By submitting your application, you commit to:

  • Attend the four feedback and progress report sessions scheduled on 2 Dec 2021, 20 January 2022, 10 March 2022, and 28 April 2022. The sessions take place between 8am-1pm in person at London Business School.  

  • Work closely with the LBS team. To that end, allow access to and engage with the LBS participants assigned to work with your team.

  • Please inform us of any crucial changes in your company's circumstances (e.g., raising additional funds, pivoting to a different business model, shutting down the business)  

Eligibility Criteria

TEL is designed to help early-stage UK technology ventures grow and thrive. You should consider applying to the programme if your venture has already developed a working prototype, achieved initial sales traction, or secured a pre-seed round. In other words, if you are at the initial ideation phase we encourage you to consider one of our future cohorts. At the same time, we are seeking early-stage growth-orientated companies. Given the program structure, you will benefit the most from participating if your team does not already include someone with strong managerial expertise. At TEL, you get automatic access to the talent pool of London Business School students with formal managerial and entrepreneurial training and several years of industry experience. Nevertheless, you may still decide to apply if you believe the programme benefits your team and the company.  

Admissions Process

After filling out the application form, you will receive a confirmation email. Please make sure to check your spam folder in case the confirmation email accidentally ends up there. We may subsequently contact you to schedule a brief virtual interview with your team if we need to gather additional information. We will then evaluate your application and update you with the decision outcome by the end of October. 


If you have any questions about the application process, please email Please note that your question might be already answered on the FAQ page.
