Building on our research and teaching achievements across a wide range of business and management disciplines, we have established to date 30 successful tripartite collaborations between London based SMEs, start-ups and entrepreneurs involving BBS students (undergraduate and postgraduate) and their supervising academics and we are currently working towards establishing many more. The Business School Co-Innovate Team, work on collaborative projects that see companies suggest real-world innovation challenges related to marketing, strategy, finance, or international business. With the launch of Co-Innovate Journeys we are forecasting 40-50 collaborative projects over the next 3 years.
