About Shreveport Next

Launched in September 2020, Shreveport Next proactively recruits small to mid-sized businesses to relocate to or build facilities in the Shreveport-Bossier area, promoting our region’s logistics, workforce, opportunity and capital for businesses. What sets Shreveport Next apart is BRF’s ability to go beyond traditional economic incentives to provide opportunities to relocating companies.

Since 2020, Shreveport Next has met with more than 400 company executives and built a pipeline worth billions of dollars of capital investment.

Shreveport Next brings BRF’s values of Innovation, Collaboration, Problem Solving and Bold Action to economic development recruitment, creating a recruitment strategy unique to the Shreveport region.
