The Center for Free Enterprise & Entrepreneurial Leadership

Following the legacy of our industrious founder, R.G. LeTourneau, business students at LeTourneau University are built with an entrepreneurial mindset and a drive to lift up their organizations as well as their cities. The Center for Free Enterprise and Entrepreneurial Leadership is a vehicle for the development of these future business and community leaders. Business students in their senior year join a team and partner with a local client to serve as consultants to solve a problem or fill a need that is presented.


Blending Character and Competence,
Theory, and Practice

The Free Enterprise and Entrepreneurial Leadership Center (FEEL) aims to support students of various disciplines to develop and enhance their entrepreneurial mindset through a holistic approach to business. We offer individual and team support, workshops, special events, consulting projects with SMEs and mentorship for startup competitions. Our students gain valuable practical experiences that complement their academic knowledge by engaging in real-world consulting projects. 

The center also emphasizes business strategy, ethics, and a comprehensive understanding of economics and finance, thus supporting free enterprises and markets. These fundamental concepts, integrated with a faith perspective, underpin our commitment to community and civic engagement that serve the interests of local, regional, national and international business ventures. Aligned with LeTourneau University's global vision, the programs at the FEEL Center are poised to deliver innovative solutions to our local community that can also be customized to impact global projects and societies.

Annual Entrepreneurship Summit

Every year the FEEL Center hosts business mentors, "Entrepreneurs in Residence", to come and speak at a summit open to all students in the School of Business. This summit is both a time to hear from the experiences of seasoned entrepreneurs and business professionals, and a time to "workshop" some of the topics/ideas presented.
