Nexus Louisiana is opening a free business center in Baton Rouge to help small business owners and entrepreneurs who are without internet, phones or electricity in the wake of Hurricane Ida.
The business center will open at 8 a.m. on Sept. 7 at the Nexus Technology Park, located at 7117 Florida Blvd., and feature individual workspaces, power, network connectivity, phones and printers, 24-hour secure building access, conference rooms, a kitchen/lounge, fitness room and showers, according to a press release.
“Our goal is to offer entrepreneurs a place to power up and get back to business,” said Nexus Louisiana President Genevieve Silverman. “As a community, it is vital that we come together during this critical time.”
Nexus Louisiana is a nonprofit formed in the early 1990s by the Louisiana legislature to help grow and diversify the state’s innovation economy.
Business owners will also have access to on-site professional support. The workspaces are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. For more information, visit nexusla.org or contact Stephen Loy at (225) 215-0088 or [email protected].
