History

The La Salle Center for Entrepreneurship (LCE) was founded as the result of a collaboration between the La Salle School of Business and several alumni who saw the increasing demand for new venture support.

LCE’s vision is to be one of the leading resources in the Philadelphia region for people interested in learning about entrepreneurship, starting their own businesses, or enhancing their own existing entrepreneurial enterprises.

Our mission is to provide entrepreneurial training to La Salle’s learning community, foster and connect students and alumni with Philadelphia-area businesses, and develop interaction with the La Salle alumni network.
