SSE Business Lab

We support you in building your entrepreneurial skillset and provide you with the tools necessary to succeed with your business idea. Regardless of where you are with your idea (or if you don’t yet have one), one of our programs is a perfect match for you.

We are celebrating our 20th year anniversary this year by sharing the history of the SSE Business Lab through the stories shared by the startup founders and CEOs who helped us grow to what we are today.

Find the interviews of Startup Stories on our anniversary website. New episodes are released every week here.

As a student, alumni or staff member of SSE (faculty or administrative staff), you are eligible for support through three different programs. 

If you're curious about entrepreneurship but don't yet have a business idea or team – you can join a program of inspirational events and workshops through Ideate to meet like-minded people and develop your business idea.

If you already have a team, and a business idea that helps solve a global challenge, you can receive support from coaches and our experienced and diverse network through Activate or Incubate. You can apply to Activate before you have built your first prototype. For Incubate, we require that you have tested a prototype with at least one customer and have a diverse team.
