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 Healthcare Innovation Fund, call the Lafayette General Foundation office at (337) 289-8950.
