People’s Vote

People’s Vote: Lauren Dennis Award

Lauren Dennis was an exceptional Imperial student and the definition of a WE Innovator; strong, fearless and a gogetter. After the sudden passing of Lauren in 2018 to small bowel cancer, the Imperial Enterprise Lab would like to continue honouring her legacy by celebrating confident and ambitious leaders, just like her.

The final five teams, alongside our semifinalist teams, are in the running to win the Lauren Dennis Award, comprised of a tailored mentoring package to accelerate business ideas beyond the programme.

Voting has now closed. The winner will be announced in our premiere final event on Friday 25th June.
