LA Emerging Technology Center
The Louisiana Emerging Technology Center (LETC) is a 60,000 square foot facility located at Louisiana State University that enables bioscience startup companies with technology ties to the University to accelerate early growth. This facility is part of a statewide network of three Wet Lab Business Incubator/Accelerators funded by the State of Louisiana, Department of Economic Development, to provide the core infrastructure necessary to nurture the development of Biotechnology companies within Louisiana. LETC includes a completely built-out and furnished lab and office space for startup companies and shell space to accommodate resident companies in the early growth phase of development. Through the design of this facility, LETC provides an interdisciplinary, synergistic atmosphere that encourages crossover thinking and interaction between resident companies.
