About the competition

Run jointly by London Business School and Walpole, and in association with law firm Charles Russell and the Financial Times, the Innovation in Luxury business plan competition has been designed to promote and inspire innovation in the luxury industry.

Students and alumni from London Business School are invited to submit business plans that demonstrate pioneering thinking and innovative approaches in the luxury sector. Conceptual business plans are welcome, as are plans for businesses that have been operating for less than 18 months, generating £0-100k in revenues.

The overall winner of the competition will receive a new business support package worth in excess of £10,000. Candidates who are successfully chosen for the final round of judging will receive access to experienced industry mentors as they develop their business plans in advance of the final stage of judging.  

Additional details can be found on the competition’s homepage.

Kind regards,
The R&LG Executive Committee
