Baton Rouge, LA (NBC33) — A technology park here in Baton Rouge is taking huge steps forward tonight.
The park's newest addition is called the Level Up Lab. It’s a state of the art digital media studio on Florida Boulevard.
The main reason for this tech park is to get people and businesses to enter into the digital media marketplace. The lab will help launch products and help businesses from the park itself.
"Enterprises and small businesses owners are the backbone of the Delta economy, the backbone of Louisiana and the backbone of the entire region,” stated Chairman Masingil with the Delta Regional Authority.
The lab was paid for through a federal/state partnership designed to help create jobs and build communities.
