UCL students buy into retail expertise as new partnership launches
True, Europe’s only retail and consumer sector specialist that operates across the entire investment vertical, is partnering with UCL School of Management to establish its first Academic & Entrepreneurial Alliance.
True will have direct input into lectures for the ‘consumer and retail module’ of the Master’s Entrepreneurship course from across its own specialist team, as well as from its extensive network of portfolio businesses, innovative startups, and Leading Industry Partners. In addition, True will host UCL School of Management students at its innovation Hub in London to immerse them in a truly entrepreneurial environment.
True will also introduce the students to members of its True Live Network, creating valuable investment, partnership and employment opportunities for students and their startups. True has already invested in two UCL School of Management alumni startups: Mishipay, a new technology that allows customers to pay for goods in store through their phones without having to go to the till, and Hoxton Analytics, a device which applies artificial intelligence to footfall and demographic tracking for highly accurate and non-invasive insight.
