Vincent Zimmer wins the European Entrepreneurial Award 2018
We are proud to present Vincent Zimmer as one of the three European winners of the UK Alumni Awards. The Entrepreneurial Award recognises UK alumni who are active in initiating or contributing to innovative or creative new ideas, solutions or business opportunities.
Vincent studied for an MSc in Public Policy and Administration at the London School of Economics and Politics (LSE) and went on to found Kiron Higher Education, a social enterprise allowing refugees to access higher education through online classes provided by 56 world-class universities.
Vincent feels his time in the UK had a unique influence on his professional life and personal development. It took him out of his comfort zone, calling for well-structured arguments to back up his theories, and the exposure to people of different backgrounds and cultures stuck with him.
"Be authentic and try to solve problems you deeply care about and not something that seems to be hot topic at the moment. Solving problems take time and only your passion will allow you to make a difference and be in for the long run." - Vincent Zimmer
