In line with the recently signed MoU between Lagos Business School (LBS) and Global Social Venture Competition (GSVC), Kristiana Raube, GSVC representative, from UC Berkeley Haas School of Business, paid a visit to LBS today, Tuesday, November 1, 2016.
As LBS is an outreach partner for GSVC, Raube met with MBA students, to give them first-hand information on the GSVC initiative.
Speaking on the reason for the partnership between LBS and GSVC, Raube noted that there was an inherent need for the GSVC competition to be more prominent in Africa, and as LBS is one of the best business schools in Africa, it was an inimitable option. “Africa is a perfect place for this competition and I know that Lagos Business School is one of the best business schools on the continent, and it is sure to generate interest on the GSVC initiative” she said.
The Global Social Venture Competition (GSVC), founded by MBA students at UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business in 1999, empowers the next generation of social entrepreneurs by providing them with mentoring, exposure, and prize money to transform their ideas into fundable, scalable ventures that address the world’s most pressing challenges.
