LBTC Consultants Obtain Coaching Certification
BATON ROUGE – Jason Boudreaux and Jennifer Fowler recently completed the technology coaching Certification Course by Wendy Kennedy at Purdue University. The duo, both of whom serve as business consultants at the LSU Louisiana Business & Technology Center, or LBTC, completed the course June 14-16.
With certification, Boudreaux and Fowler are now enabled to deliver the Inventor’s Commercialization Toolkit for scientists, researchers, engineers and technology entrepreneurs. The LBTC will be conducting six- to nine-week training programs for technology entrepreneurs to assist them in discovering the business value proposition of science and technology innovations.
According to LBTC Executive Director Charles D’Agostino, Boudreaux and Fowler will be working with engineers, scientists and researchers from LSU, Southern University, Pennington, LSU Veterinary Medicine and LSU Emerging Technology Center, as well as local engineers, industry researchers and other technology entrepreneurs. The program will cover developing the “idea” and taking it to the marketplace in the most cost effective and efficient manner.
“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.
The Louisiana Business & Technology Center, an integral part of LSU’s E. J. Ourso College of Business, endeavors to enhance economic development in Louisiana through the support of existing small businesses and the development of new businesses. Established in 1988, the LBTC’s highly successful business incubator program has been honored as the National Business Incubator Association’s Incubator of the Year.
