Lab for Entrepreneurship and Development (LEAD) is a research lab affiliated with Harvard's IQSS. Its mission is to generate and share knowledge about entrepreneurship and development across cultural and disciplinary boundaries. LEAD operates with three central pillars:
Furthering Scholarship - fostered through our research fellowship, a 6-month research opportunity for undergraduate students, graduate students, post-docs, and professors to conduct a research project with academic support and advising. Additional details can be found here.
Fostering Collaboration - primarily made possible through our annual "Entrepreneurship and Development Conference" hosted at Harvard University. Our first annual conference was hosted in August 2018.
Distributing Knowledge - through the LEAD book series, we collect, edit, and distribute research at the frontier of entrepreneurship and development scholarship.
