Lafayette General Foundation Executive Director Selected for “2016 Silicon Bayou 100”
Lafayette General Foundation (LGF) Executive Director Cian
Robinson was named by Silicon Bayou News to the 2016 Silicon Bayou 100. Now in its
sixth year, the awards recognize the 100 most influential and active people in
tech and entrepreneurship in Louisiana.
“This isn’t just a win for the Foundation, but for all of
Acadiana,” says Robinson. “This is a recognition of the groundbreaking work
we’re doing at Lafayette General Health (LGH). Whether it’s delivering
state-of-the-art equipment to hospitals within our system, or investing in
innovative partnerships, its humbling to know this work is being recognized by
others within the state.”
Driving innovation is a key cornerstone for LGF. Thanks to
a partnership between LGF, LGH and Louisiana Economic Development Corporation,
the Foundation operates the Healthcare Innovation Fund. This seed-money
investment program has devoted money to a number of companies and initiatives
that have helped to enhance healthcare.
The Foundation is currently looking into other
healthcare-related start-up businesses for subsequent investments, some of
which are already in the evaluation process. For more information about the
