Louisiana Growth Leaders

Louisiana Growth Leaders is an annual honor bestowed upon a select group of LED Growth Network companies. A diverse panel of judges, comprised of economic development professionals, evaluates applications based upon a select criteria determined by LED. About much more than just growth, the selection panel takes into consideration leadership, culture and community contributions, among other factors. The applicant pool is thoroughly vetted by the selection panel, and those selected each year will receive the honor of being recognized as Louisiana Growth Leaders at the annual Spotlight Louisiana reception. Being a Louisiana Growth Leader means you have gone above and beyond as both a business and community leader.
