Welcome to LEAD (Louisiana Enterprise Ability Development)!

We are currently recruiting for our 2014 summer program and only taking 60 students.  Apply now by clicking here.

Formerly known as Free Enterprise Week, LEAD is a Nicholls State University program designed to teach high school seniors about the private enterprise system, entrepreneurship and what economic growth means to our democratic form of government. Incoming high school juniors and seniors gain real-world, applied knowledge on what it takes to start a business, finance a venture, bring a product or service to market and everything in-between.

Students will hear from special guest speakers, industry professionals, and work side-by-side with peers in an instant feedback, incubator atmosphere. The week covers learning and applied practice in drafting a business plan, marketing, sales, accounting/finance, management, regional economic impact and operations.

The LEAD program will be hosted from July 20th – July 26th. In 2014, we’re only accepting 60 students so register today to ensure your participation opportunity!
