Center for Entrepreneurship

Take control of your future through the La Salle Center for Entrepreneurship 

In today’s competitive economic environment, people with entrepreneurial spirits will not only succeed in their chosen careers but also will drive business creation, growth, and job opportunities for the larger business community. 

If you’re an aspiring entrepreneur or corporate innovator, find the support at the La Salle Center for Entrepreneurship (LCE). Through mentoring, networking, and experiential learning, you’ll discover how to flex your innovative muscles, build leadership skills, explore the business landscape, and take measured risks to achieve your dreams. In addition, alumni and faculty will give back through mentoring as well as pursue their own entrepreneurial goals. 

Reasons to pursue entrepreneurship: 

  • Entrepreneurial people tend to be hard-working, highly motivated, and creative thinkers unafraid to take risks and advance their own or their company’s vision. 
  • Many of tomorrow’s jobs don’t yet exist, but they most likely will be created by entrepreneurial people who are problem-solvers, innovators, and leaders in their field. 
  • Entrepreneurship is the only equal-opportunity employer you’ll ever need, letting you create your own job or business, regardless of your ethnic, economic, social, or academic background. 
  • Entrepreneurship is the backbone of the U.S. economy and will drive personal, national, and global success. 

LCE can help you develop the business-building skills you need though our various programs: 

  • Internships at our Business Engagement Center will put you in a hands-on role working with small and startup companies to walk in the shoes of real entrepreneurs while providing critical business support functions in marketing, financial modeling and analysis, market research and product strategy, and more. 
  • Individual venture mentoring to work through your own ideas and concepts including a business viability assessment and financial model. 
  • Introductions to many of the resources available in Philadelphia to share your enthusiasm and ideas with other entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial students. 

Take control of your future today.
