BOSSIER CITY, LA – The South Bossier Lunch Group gathered on Wednesday, June 12, 2024, at the Bellaire South Complex in Bossier City, featuring Kevin Nolten, president of the Cyber Innovation Center (CIC), as the keynote speaker. Nolten discussed the CIC’s vital role in the local community and economy.

Nolten began by providing an overview of the CIC’s history and its impact on Bossier City.

“I am the new president of the Cyber Innovation Center. I’ve been with the organization for ten years, starting out by running the education division at cyber.org. My background is in education workforce development,” Nolten said. “The first six months in my new position have been exciting, with a renewed sense of connection, urgency to grow, and relationship building within the community. I’ve made it a goal to secure two new contracts with federal entities within a year and a half. We are very close to landing a significant contract with a federal agency that will bring jobs here.”

The Cyber Innovation Center, located in Bossier City, Louisiana, anchors the 3,000-acre National Cyber Research Park. It serves as a catalyst for developing and expanding a knowledge-based workforce throughout the region.

As a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, the CIC fosters collaboration among its partners, accelerating technology, research, and development. One of its primary missions is to create a sustainable knowledge-based workforce that can support the growing needs of government, industry, and academic partners.

The South Bossier Lunch Group aims to unite individuals in the South Bossier community who seek to stay informed and make a positive impact. Through their monthly luncheons, the group facilitates networking among South Bossier business owners, stakeholders, community leaders, and partners, promoting discussions on the growth, development, and business prospects of South Bossier and Bossier City.
