On June 2014, the Esposito brothers launched Association World- LEA in order to further cultural, study and research activities and to supply professional assistance.

W-LEA’s organization draws inspiration from the Networks of Businesses: so, we are open to national and international partners and foster solidarity and collaboration among researchers, managers and professionals.

We aim at creating synergies in Italy and all over Europe through partnerships whose object is the scientific knowledge and research in the sectors related to business development.

This intention paves the way for an alliance among entrepreneurs and professionals in the perspective of the “social value” of the economic initiative thought as a “welfare, growing and development lever” guaranteed by art. 41 of Italian constitution and by SBA at European level.

In order to achieve its goals W-LEA avails itself of the Scientific Committee which coordinates and encourages research activities.

As to professional assistance, the Association has recourse to Departments specialized in particular areas of work.

They allow the Association to give legal and economic assistance to Public administration, Universities and research centres, parks and public institutions for protected areas, private and public companies. Our advisory services focus mainly on: Administrative law Businesses, Public credit and microcredit, Technological innovation, Research, Urbanistic planning and development.
