Jason Boudreaux and Jennifer Fowler took and completed the technology coaching Certification Course by Wendy Kennedy at Purdue University, enabling them to deliver the Inventor’s Commercialization Toolkit for scientists, researchers, engineers and technology entrepreneurs. The two currently serve as business consultants at the LSU Louisiana Business & Technology Center (LBTC). They completed the course over two days last month (June 14-16).
The Louisiana Business & Technology Center houses over 25 small businesses in its incubator, in addition to operating a student incubator geared towards young entrepreneurs. To date, thousands of businesses and entrepreneurs have received assistance.
The LBTC will host a number of six to nine week training programs for technology entrepreneurs with hopes to encourage science and technology innovations. The program will help develop each technology entrepreneur’s innovation and take it to the marketplace in a cost effective way.
LBTC Executive Director Charles D’Agostino shared that Boudreaux and Fowler will be working with engineers, scientists and researchers from LSU, Southern University, Pennington, LSU Veterinary Medicine and LSU Emerging Technology Center. In addition, they play to work with local engineers, industry researchers, and other technology entrepreneurs.
“This program is focused on technology entrepreneurs and will complement the Louisiana Business & Technology Center’s Small Business Innovation Research grant program and other high tech services offered at the LSU Innovation Park,” D’Agostino said.
