The Local Enterprise Authority (LEA) was established by the Small Business Act of 2004 to carry out on behalf of the Government of Botswana – and more specifically the Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI) – the mandate of entrepreneurship and enterprise development in Botswana.

The Authority prides itself on having an extensive countrywide footprint of 13 branches. Through the guidance of the Quality Management System Standard, the high quality of service is standardised in all the branches and clients are thus guaranteed excellent service in the whole LEA branch network, regardless of location. The 13 branches are in Francistown, Gaborone, Ghanzi, Kanye, Kasane, Masunga, Maun, Mochudi, Molepolole, Ramotswa, Selibe-Phikwe, Serowe and Tsabong.
