Albert Lepage Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation

New Orleans is one of the world’s great startup cities, and Tulane is uniquely qualified to help our entrepreneurs thrive. The Albert Lepage Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the Freeman School of Business brings together scholars, inventors, investors and students to solve problems and build businesses. Their programs provide direct support for Tulanians, New Orleanians and communities across the Gulf South.

The programs of the Lepage Center (including the Tulane Family Business Center, the Levy-Rosenblum Institute for Entrepreneurship Research and the Tulane Business Model Competition) are led by Lepage Center Executive Director Rob Lalka, the staff, and faculty at the A. B. Freeman School.

The Lepage Center recently relocated to its permanent location in the Goldring Woldenberg Business Complex (GWBC). The new state-of-the-art suites include student incubator space and Entrepreneur-in-Residence offices.  Please come visit us!

The Albert Lepage Center is located on the 3rd Floor of the GWBC.  Our offices and accelerator are located in the center of the building.  When you arrive at the GWBC, take the elevators to the 3rd Floor.  Walk around the staircase and pass through the glass doors; our offices are on the right, Suite 330.
