A local nonprofit is working to alleviate two of the biggest problems facing south Louisiana: disappearing jobs and a disappearing coast.
The Bayou Region Incubator seeks to help businesses in Terrebonne, Lafourche and St. Mary parishes launch and grow, paying special attention to those dealing with coastal erosion.
The organization intends to house start-ups in a subsidized space. It will help them save on internet, utilities, conference rooms and office space. And it will offer services such as financial planning, funding options, marketing training and mentoring.
