LSU Student Incubator helps students grow a business

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - LSU has a new resource available to students to help start or grow their business while they are in school.

The LSU Student Incubator provides for one-on-one business consulting with others in their industry. It also gives students help with business plans and market research.

"We realized that we could be helping these students while they're in school, so they can be doing all this prep work - getting their business plan written, getting their business up and running - so by the time they graduate, they can already be generating revenue," said Jennifer Fowler. "And this can really be a real career option for them when they graduate."

This process began four years ago at the start of an undergraduate's college career. Students are taking all the help they can get with graduation nearing.
