Keith Willey has been a faculty member at UCL since since 2009 at London Business School since the late '90s. He chairs the London Business School's long-established angel investor club – the Enterprise 100. He is formerly Executive Director of the School's Foundation for Entrepreneurial Management and was founding CEO of the Centre for Scientific Enterprise – LBS's joint venture  with UCL – in 1999. He is also a faculty member at UCL.
