The entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well on our side of the bayou. It’s a significant part of who we are, and it’s shaping who we become — but that’s only part of the story. When coupled with the incentives and resilience of the region, this same spirit is spearheading the growth of new businesses all across South Louisiana.
Our advantages of a strategic location and world-class workforce help sustain local legends like international jewelry manufacturer and distributor, Stuller Inc., while propelling budding ventures, too.
This range of support is perfectly illustrated through the success of tech transplant CGI and startup Waitr. Despite their vastly different backgrounds, both companies have capitalized on the region’s strong, pro-business climate to drive themselves — and Louisiana — into the future.
These results weren’t created by happy accidents. They’re handcrafted and refined by the spirit of South Louisiana. And they can be yours, too.
