About the LBTC
Since the LBTC was established 26 years ago, we have continued to foster growth in new businesses, spur economic diversification and expand Louisiana’s economy. The LBTC has won national and international recognition as one of the nation’s top technology business incubators. A few of the incubator’s most recent awards include 2013 AURP Emerging Research Park of the Year (With the LSU Innovation Park), 2009 NBIA most innovative program, 2009 EDA Excellence in Economic Development, 2007 Federal Lab Consortium Technology Transfer Outstanding Service Award, the 2007 Southern Growth Policies Board Innovator Award, and the 2005 NBIA Incubator of the Year (out of 1200 Incubators internationally).
We house over 30 small businesses as tenants in our incubator and have counseled thousands of entrepreneurs and small businesses in the state through various initiatives. Among these programs are our Technology Transfer Office, Mobile Classroom, and ProtoStripes. Additionally, we operate the LSU Student Incubator to aid younger entrepreneurs who are still in school with their burgeoning businesses.
Advantages to LBTC Tenant Businesses
Ideally located at the LSU Innovation Park, the 25,000 square foot LBTC small business incubator provides office space and a friendly business environment for new business startups. By allowing the incubator to handle administrative details and overhead problems, the tenant companies can concentrate on operations, production, and marketing, three factors that directly affect success. The LBTC has worked with small businesses and entrepreneurs to attract more than $177 million in loans, equity investments and SBIR grants, as well as create more than 10,000 jobs for Louisiana.
