LSU's business and tech incubator adds four new tenants, graduates one
Four startup businesses—including a digital marketing agency, an LED products supplier, an environmental permitting and compliance consultant, and a specialized testing services firm—have graduated from the Louisiana Business & Technology Center's student incubator program are and joining the LBTC business incubator at LSU's south campus. "The entrepreneurial activity in the area is thriving as we are attracting many new companies to the incubator," says LBTC Executive Director Charles D'Agostino. "Many of these companies want the strong linkage with LSU that the LBTC provides." Meanwhile, Secure Nation, an information security–focused IT consulting and sourcing firm, is graduating from the business incubator on Friday. Since Jon Davis founded Secure Nation four years ago with two employees, it has grown to 14 employees. The startups entering the business incubator include BluReach, a digital marketing agency created by LSU students Trevor Reeves and Sean Simone; HITLights, which is already one of the leading LED products suppliers in North America; Global Environmental Solutions Inc., or GESI, which was established in 2010 by Brian Soucy and helps clients navigate the complex environmental permitting and regulatory process; and SCTCS Group, which was established in February by William Moe and offers a narrow range of specialized testing services related to settling and compression properties of hydraulically dredged sediments.
