Although it just opened, JEDCO’s Business Innovation Center, a state-of-the-art business incubator operating at Churchill Technology & Business Park on the Westbank of Jefferson Parish, welcomed its first tenants, Riverland Solar, LLC and Global Commerce & Services, LLC. This follows news last week of two startups joining the Louisiana Business and Technology Center at the LSU in Baton Rouge.
Riverland Solar, LLC designs and installs high performance solar energy and solar thermal systems of all sizes. Riverland’s renewable energy systems can power residential homes, businesses and industrial facilities. The company helps its customers to achieve energy independence while maximizing all available federal and state tax credits and incentives.
Global Commerce and Services, LLC offers management and technical expertise in information systems, providing services such as project/program management, systems/software engineering, communication engineering, quality assurance and cyber security.
The Business Innovation Center is designed to assist in the development of business start-ups and early-stage companies by providing them with the advantage of lower operating costs, interaction with other entrepreneurs and direct interaction with business experts and resources. Early-stage growth businesses enjoy ready access to JEDCO’s resources and expertise by locating their business within the Business Innovation Center or by participating remotely in the incubator program. As an additional benefit to incubator tenants and remote participants, the Small Business Development Center Greater New Orleans Region will have an office at the Business Innovation Center to assist early-stage businesses.
Office space within the Business Innovation Center is offered to tenants at a fraction of the market-rate cost. JEDCO can also design multiple configurations of larger offices for expanding businesses. New businesses needing to move ideas, products and services into the global economy, can find both resources and office space at JEDCO’s Business Innovation Center.
