Crowd interaction

Louisiana Tech’s I-20 Top Twenty, an event that annually highlights economic and business development success found at the heart of north Louisiana’s I-20 corridor, will be from 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, April 30, at University Hall on campus.

By celebrating ingenuity and excellence, this much-anticipated event helps to identify, connect, engage, and energize innovators, entrepreneurs, and forward-thinking individuals throughout the region.

Emerging business leaders, futuristic thinkers, research and technology investigators, young CEOs, and founders participate by demonstrating the potential of their endeavors. Select entrepreneurs will deliver brief presentations for their new ventures at 6. Beginning at 7, a variety of prototypes, technologies, products, and services will be exhibited and explored.

Established business and community leaders are invited to share their experience and connections. This helps facilitate progress and growth for the promising new ventures being showcased. Everyone engages to ask questions, provide feedback, and offer encouragement.

“The I-20 Top Twenty helps develop the entrepreneurial ecosystem, build community, and stimulate economic opportunities within this region by boosting new ventures, strengthening existing firms, and rejuvenating industry icons,” said Kathy Wyatt, Tech’s Enterprise Campus Director. “This effort helps shape our economic future and position north Louisiana for prosperity and growth.”
