Enterprise is an unincorporated town in the Las Vegas Valley in Clark County, Nevada, United States. The population was 108,481 at the 2010 U.S. Census, up from 14,676 at the 2000 census. It was founded on December 17, 1996. Like other unincorporated towns in the Las Vegas Valley, it uses Las Vegas ZIP Codes for addresses within its boundaries.
The first inhabitants of what is now Enterprise would have been the Paiute Indians, who were spread across the Las Vegas Valley. In 1905, the railroad town of Arden was formed for miners who worked at the nearby gypsum mines just west of the area. The area was part of Lincoln County until 1909, when Clark County was split off from Lincoln County. The oldest structure in the area is a water tower, which was built in 1926.
References to the area as "Enterprise" date back to at least 1918, when county commissioners established an Enterprise school district. According to one historian, the word may simply have been chosen at that time as a positive-sounding name.
