London’s University of Opportunity

Where you come from does not define your destiny! Life is full of hurdles and interruptions. The secret to finding your place in the world is in possessing an enterprising attitude. 

After all, enterprise is about more than just entrepreneurship and start-ups: it’s a way of being and a way of doing.

London South Bank University (LSBU) alumni exemplify this attitude every day; striving, achieving and improving the opportunities that are open to others.

“From living in a hostel to carrying the Olympic torch, alumnus Tunji Akintokun’s story is one of overcoming adversity. Now he’s focusing on helping young people to do the same.”

“Tech evangelist, social entrepreneur, thought leader, writer, speaker and mum – alumna Dr Sue Black has worked tirelessly to get more women coding, inspired by her own life-changing experiences.”
