Students learning about entrepreneurship in the Ideation Lab

​​​​​​​30% of entrepreneurship is teachable. 70% is experiential. We can give you both.

The Center for Entrepreneurship and Community Development is Loyola's hub for entrepreneurial activity across campus and a vital link to the New Orleans entrepreneurial community.

Anyone can have a good idea - but it takes skill development and practice to turn that idea into a profitable venture. As one of the best cities for young entrepreneurs (Lending Tree, 2018), New Orleans is particularly well positioned to provide the hands-on, entrepreneurial experience students need to be successful after college. 


Interested in getting involved with the Center?

Students need experience. New Orleans needs talent. We can help connect them and make an impact - but we need your help! Sign up to mentor with Wolf Pack LaunchU, or present at the weekly Innovate.Thursday speaker series, or make a gift to allow the Center to continue its efforts to provide an innovation toolkit to the entire Loyola University community.
