"It’s been an excellent start to the five-year plan for Enterprise and you can read more in this review. But such is the strength, depth and diversity of our activities that it can only reflect a small proportion of the outstanding work of the UCL community. Every member of UCL is to be congratulated for a tremendously successful year and with the promise of much, much more to come."
Prof Stephen Caddick
2012 UCL SMILE Best Mentor Award
The 2012 UCL SMILE Best Mentor Award is presented to the business mentor
who demonstrates the most support and value to their mentee company.
As part of entrepreneurial promotion and activities and services to highlight innovation, UCL Advances (UCL’s centre for entrepreneurship and business interaction) coordinates SMILE (Selected Mentors and Interims for London Enterprises) to help London-based SMEs grow and develop by analysing business needs and connecting them to business mentors.
SMILE is for London micro, small and medium-sized businesses experiencing “growing pains” due to the lack of specific managerial expertise as needed in development phases. The enterprises would have already passed their start-up phase and are now experiencing managerial challenges that are holding back the potential to grow significantly.
