LUMS Centre of Entrepreneurship

LUMS Center for Entrepreneurship (LCE), in only a short time of its conception, has managed to become one of the most recognized in bringing entrepreneurs to the spotlight. LCE is now taking applications for the latest installment of the 4-month summer program called “The Foundation”. The program offers business incubation and acceleration to those who are accepted in it.

The Foundation Council will test and examine your startup rigorously after which LCE picks up the most noteworthy startup. So if you are planning to apply for the program, make sure you are an entrepreneur who has a passion in pursuing their startup to its full potential.

The Foundation will offer many facilities and luxuries to the accepted startups. The founders will be guided through the administrative hassles of the startups. There will be agreed upon milestones which will measure the startup development over the course of the 4-month incubation/acceleration cycle. The startups managing to meet the expectations of LCE will be showcased at an investor conference upon their graduation.
