LA Tech Enterprise Campus expands

by BIZ Magazine

A new addition to Louisiana Tech University’s Enterprise Campus — Tech Pointe II — has officially opened.

The plans for the construction of Tech Pointe II were announced in 2019 by Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards. Four years later, Edwards attended the building’s ribbon cutting ceremony and stressed the importance of a statewide commitment to higher education and to growth of universities like Louisiana Tech.

“When I think about the opportunities that will be created for students here at Tech Pointe II, that every time a tenant comes here and is successful by working with a Tech student … I believe we are going see a virtuous cycle of success begetting success,” Edwards said. “That’s what the leadership here in Lincoln Parish, Ruston, and Louisiana Tech understands.” 

Edwards pointed out that the facility is not the only testament to his words and referred to the Integrated Engineering and Science Building across the street from Tech Pointe II, another large, campus-enhancing project that was funded in part by state support.

Like the rest of the Enterprise Campus, Tech Pointe II serves both its tenants and Louisiana Tech students, fostering partnerships that will lead to world-class career paths for home-grown talent.

Tech Pointe II expands on the efforts of the original Tech Pointe to welcome industry partners to the University. Three companies — Radiance Technologies, Louisiana New Product Development Team, and Crossmark Management Group — currently call Tech Pointe II home. The companies enter a five-year lease to occupy the building.
