Big Bucks for Lafayette Tech Business

The Advertiser this morning carries the first of what should be a long series of good news stories spawned by Lafayette's tech cluster.
The National Science Foundation has put $600,000 behind diversifying the state's economy by helping companies utilize new technologies.

The University of Louisiana's Center for Business Information Technologies received the grant to create Louisiana Technology Incubator for Entrepreneurial Success to link businesses to Lafayette's emerging technological resources...

Interested businesses are encouraged to contact the center, because a limited number of in-house slots will be available. Clients will receive fee-based office space and in-house technical, research and administrative support.
Anybody local that's got an idea that would benefit from a lot of computing power, a lot of bandwidth and access to some of the most advanced visualization toys in world ought to start talking to Ramesh Kolluru at ULL.
