JEDCO’s sets Opening for new Business Innovation Center with Focus on International Trade
JEDCO’s Business Innovation Center is set to open on April 1st at Churchill Technology & Business Park on the Westbank of Jefferson Parish. With access to JEDCO’s resources and expertise, early-stage growth businesses can benefit from locating within the Business Innovation Center or by participating remotely in the incubator program. The center’s focus is to drive the development of technology-based companies with a niche in import/export management, freight forwarding, custom brokering, international consulting, distributing and manufacturing.
The Business Innovation Center is designed to assist in the development of business start-ups and early-stage companies by providing them with the advantage of lower operating costs, interaction with other entrepreneurs and direct interaction with business experts and resources. The center provides the space, services and assistance needed to help overcome the initial challenges faced by new businesses.
Office space within the Business Innovation Center will be offered to tenants at a fraction of the market-rate cost. JEDCO can also design multiple configurations of larger offices for expanding businesses.
The Business Innovation Center is ideally located within the 500 acre Churchill Technology & Business Park in close proximity to railways, interstates, international airlines and shipping ports, which provides a natural advantage for distribution, inbound/outbound cargo for storage and container handling, as well as light manufacturing. Located at the hub of the largest intermodal transportation system in the South, Churchill and the Business Innovation Center are just 20 minutes outside of downtown New Orleans.
According to the National Business Incubation Association, three out of five new business start-ups fail within the first five years. However, four out of five new businesses that start in an incubator program succeed within five years.
If your new business needs to move ideas, products and services into the global economy, look no further than JEDCO’s Business Innovation Center. For more information, contact Lucien Gunter at (504) 833-1881.
