Pointe Coupee Economic Development works with Louisiana's business leaders and government officials to foster a business environment that encourages the creation of new businesses, helps existing businesses thrive and grow, and attracts investment in the community. We are committed to workforce development and job growth. Pointe Coupee Economic Development markets our area at meetings, trade shows, and through the development of promotional materials. We assist Louisiana business and government in strategic planning to create a livable community and stronger economic base.
Pointe Coupee is a great area to consider bio-energy development, digital media, advanced manufacturing, value added agri-business, and transportation/distribution.
