Welcome to LEAD (Louisiana Enterprise Ability Development)!

We are currently recruiting for our 2015 program and only taking 25 students.  Apply now by clicking here.

Formerly known as Free Enterprise Week, LEAD is a Nicholls State University program designed to teach young adults about the private enterprise system, entrepreneurship and what economic growth means to our democratic form of government. Nicholls students 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 month-long series of seminars cover learning and applied practice in drafting a business plan, marketing, sales, finance, management, regional economic impact and operations.

The LEAD program will be hosted from March 28-May 2. In 2015, we’re only accepting 25 students so register today to ensure your participation opportunity!
