If you’re a student who wants to launch and grow your own business, the LSU Student Incubator can help.
We’ve created an environment specifically designed to help student entrepreneurs succeed without the distractions of roommates and coffee shops. Members of the LSU Student Incubator are surrounded by like-minded students, more than 30 Louisiana Business & Technology Center (LBTC) tenant companies, a staff of consultants, and experienced mentors eager to help develop ideas into profitable businesses. The Student Incubator is more than a place to work; it is the first step to becoming a successful entrepreneur.
LBTC Staff and Flores MBA Graduate Assistants provide coaching on business practices, strategic business planning, marketing, and financial modeling for each student business.
