North Louisiana Entrepreneurial Accelerator Program Set To Expand Into Monroe

EZ-Rydr CEO, Kyle Staude, talks about how Catalyst has helped his business expand

"The leadership at Louisiana Catalyst are the epitome of community and selflessness, two core facets of EZ-RYDR’s approach to business. The clear overlap are the very reason we are proud supporters of this incredible organization and if need be, be a valuable supplemental resource to community partners who join the Catalyst family. Josh Mitchell and Quentin Durr were integral parts in EZ-RYDR’s expansion into Ruston and continue to do so as we expand across north Louisiana – but did so unconditionally. It’s rare to find others who are willing to put valuable time and effort into your vision with no expectations of something in return. I’m a firm believer in the saying “it’s not always what you know, but who you know.” The expertise and network at Louisiana Catalyst are what makes them perfect facilitators for the growth and overall improvement of the north Louisiana community."
