U.S. Representative Garrett visits Louisiana Technology Park
As part of Congressional Startup Day, U.S. Representative for Louisiana’s 6th district Garret Graves visited the Tech Park to learn about Baton Rouge’s startup ecosystem. Graves toured the offices of Tech Park member companies MasteryPrep and Pixel Dash Studios before holding a roundtable discussion with several other Tech Park members.
In MasteryPrep’s office, Graves talked to the company about their standardized test preparation programs. At Pixel Dash, he watched the 360 VR Experience the company developed to promote the new Child’s Play movie. Both companies talked to Graves about various projects they have been working on.
In the roundtable discussion, members brought up concerns about the Baton Rouge small business environment. Graves listened to their concerns, and together they discussed different ways to help small businesses thrive in Louisiana.
