Several high-tech companies that have come to north Louisiana to capitalize on the intellectual, commercialization and research strengths of Louisiana Tech University are hosting an open house at their offices in Tech Pointe at Louisiana Tech’s Enterprise Campus, at 5:30 p.m. Sept. 13.

Company CEOs, local and state legislators, and university administrators will gather with members of the community to showcase many of the projects and collaborations that are taking place at Tech Pointe.  The event is free and the public is invited to attend.

Tech Pointe is the the first multi-tenant facility constructed at Louisiana Tech’s research park, Enterprise Campus.  Along with the tenant companies, Tech Pointe is home to the Air Force-funded Cyber Research Laboratory and the Industry Consortium for Innovations in Communications, Information and Cyberspace (IC3) – an organization that works to foster bonds between industry, the university, and government in an effort to support the rapidly growing communications and technology ecosystem now developing around the university’s hub in northern Louisiana.

The open house will feature a welcome from Tech President Dan Reneau, a panel discussion with the company CEOs, and an opportunity for guests to tour Tech Pointe and visit with the companies.

Organizations with offices and operations in Tech Pointe include Fenway Group (Dallas, Texas), Radiance Technologies (Huntsville, Ala.), Beyond Vision (Orlando, Fla.), 5 Dynamics (Fairview, Texas), Logic Nation (Shreveport, La.), and the Cyber Innovation Center (Bossier City, La.), and the IC3 Consortium.  They will be joined by companies from Louisiana Tech’s Enterprise Center business incubators including Haptic Unlimited, Biovations, Helpflix, NFT, S2S Tutor, Jupiter Fuels, American Strategic Innovation, PVR America, and Infosytech.
