The Beaver:

This year’s event is the second annual conference organised by the LSE Entrepreneur Society after the great success achieved in 2011. The weekend included a series of talks, workshops and networking events hosted by distinguished entrepreneurs and business leaders.

In his opening speech, Paul Schmelzing of the LSE Entrepreneur Society, said entrepreneurs should have the “passion to create and should be people who oppose stagnation.” Furthermore, Schmelzing went on to say that “we believe innovation and progress do not come naturally.”

Following Schmelzing’s introduction, Rajiv Dokhia, President of the LSE Entrepreneur Society hoped that this years Spark conference would serve as “an inspiration both in life and business” and believed that the event “is another reminder of how to promote growth” within a stagnant economy.
