RESEARCH AND INNOVATION ENTERPRISE
Louisiana Tech’s Enterprise Campus is a master-planned development with leading-edge infrastructure, facilities, and staff to support the recruitment, retention, and expansion of high-growth, technology-based businesses that attract highly skilled, innovative employees. Tenant companies have formal and informal relationships with the research and development, technology transfer, and education activities of the University. The University provides tenant companies with linkages to its comprehensive set of business development and support resources including entrepreneurial development, venture startup, incubation, growth and expansion.
The Enterprise Campus Masterplan calls for a highly functional and attractive work environment for tenants and is based on principles of planning and architecture that work together to create a human-scale, walkable, densely populated community.
