Entrepreneurship and Economy are a vital part of the Louisiana Small Business Development Center (LSBDC) mission, so it’s no secret that the education of the two are part of its objective.
To celebrate National Entrepreneurship Month and Global Entrepreneurship Week 2016 (GEW), the LSBDC developed a statewide initiative to educate the millennial generation on entrepreneurship and economy.
During the week of November 14 – 20, GEW is developed to inspire people through local, national and global activities and is designed to help them explore their potential as self-starters and innovators.
