Led by passionate volunteers from across 8 parishes, INNOV8 Acadiana provides the catalyst to help new and existing businesses accelerate their dreams to the next level of success and job creation.

Think of INNOV8 as your community super-connector.

We bridge the gap between entrepreneurs, business leaders, investors, mentors, professional service companies, speakers, educators, and just about anyone else interested in growing personally or professionally in the business community.


Meetups and other events throughout the year are the best place to meet fellow innovators. We believe that great things happen when good people come together and share ideas. Join the conversation!


Have the Next Big Idea? Ready to find out? Several pitch events are planned throughout the year including the LAGCOE Energy Pitch Challenge, the Delta Regional Pitch, and Cajun Code Fest. Sign Up!


Investment money is never the issue. Motivated investment teams from around the state are ready right now to invest in viable, scaleable businesses. Got a great business model? A plan for amazing growth?
