A successful business exhibition occurred at LSST’s Elephant and Castle campus on 26th April.

In fact, it is where our lecturers learn from their students!
Benefits of holding a business exhibition at LSST
Business exhibitions provide several benefits for students. The show helped exhibitors to learn about the experience of other entrepreneurs and gain inspiration for their own businesses. The expedition allowed students to display their entrepreneurial talent and build a network of contacts. They validate their ideas and receive feedback from the audience including student peers, faculty members, industry professionals and potential customers. In fact, many of the connections they made will help them in their entrepreneurial journey where they shared ideas and formulated opinions. By participating in such events, students can strengthen their entrepreneurial skills, build their professional network, and take their businesses to the next level.
Business shows provide students with the confidence to pursue their business and motivate them to do more.
Joshua & Vasilena – BA (Hons) Business Management with Foundation (Year 2) at E&C campus.
Joshua EM Sesay and Vasileva Pehlivanova have their own business and follow their dreams. There was an excellent article about them on LSST News (https://www.lsst.ac/news/lsst-elephant-and-castle-student-entrepreneurs-launch-tie-dye-business/). Their business is a sole trader scheme at present and as friends and business students, they decided to collaborate and bring that collectiveness to collaborate in the fashion and clothing industry. The idea of the business came when they decided to focus on handmade clothing and accessories that would not be harmful to the environment – and dyed clothing is a market that is growing rapidly so they thought it best to be part of a standout art of creativity with a mixed patterns of colours. As for a small business with a small budget, they decided to invest in authentic Nike socks and create a look that is not common for everyone and most importantly sock lovers to bring a splash of colour to their everyday outfits. Their product is from Nike and they selected it as a start-up product because it is already a known brand to the public and it is known for its authenticity. As a way for their business to be recognized. Their products include gift boxes for birthdays, self-treat, and family, a crochet basket to bring order and organized little items in the house.
