Enterprise 100 or “E100” is the private angel investment club operating within London Business School.
As one of the longest-running investment groups in the UK, we have been meeting continually since 1999. The group reviews and invests in opportunities arising from within and beyond the School’s networks and generally sees these ahead of other groups in the region being one of the criteria for a business to be selected to present to ensure the Club’s exclusivity. Interesting businesses funded by the group include iglu.com, now a £200m turnover travel business and Natural Motion, a gaming graphics business sold to Zynga for $527m. Meeting five times a year, as well as a members-only Annual Dinner, each event also includes a guest speaker from the entrepreneurial world.
E100 is an integral part of the London Business School entrepreneurship ecosystem which includes a business incubator, a VC fund manager and numerous clubs and events which connect the international entrepreneurial activity of the School, its students and alumni.
Membership is available to London Business School alumni as well as non-alumni high net worth individual investors. Similarly companies looking to pitch for funding don't necessarily have to have a prior connection with the School.
