The Tech Park continues to show responsible management of its investment and assets. The growth seen by the Park is evident in the fact it has a net income from tenants and other activities. It is also approaching the catalyst phase where there is enough activity within the Park to draw additional tenants. It's how these incubators grow and thrive. This activity will spill into the community around it, just as it has in many other urban centers.
...
It's also good to see Johnny Burgess as the new chair of the Park. John's leadership at Mainstream has led to continued growth and innovation from a company that grew from small beginnings.

I want nothing more than for LR and the Tech Park to succeed spectacularly. The facts that tax rev was sub par and that a $2M deficit for a 2021 payoff are concerning, however. There is a glut of venture capital funding out there and none of it seems to be flowing here. There also seems to be more businesses moving to NLR (ie, Argenta.) I’d like to see an interview with someone like Bill Halter on this topic and what the Tech Park needs to do differently in order to attract more companies and startups. He was a very successful VC and has a hugely successful business - Scenic Hill Solar - also based in NLR. Still can’t believe we didn’t elect that guy governor when we had the chance.
