Shreveport Next’s mission is to recruit small to mid-sized businesses from across the country to relocate or build new facilities in the Shreveport-Bossier area, bringing new jobs and revenue to the region.
About Shreveport Next
Launched in September 2020 as BRF’s newest initiative, Shreveport Next proactively recruits small to mid-sized businesses to relocate to or build facilities in the Shreveport-Bossier area, promoting our region’s access, affordability, opportunity and capital for businesses. What sets Shreveport Next apart is BRF’s ability to provide other funding opportunities to relocating companies that may be otherwise unavailable.
Well Connected. To the World.
With a population close to 440,000 people, Shreveport and neighboring Bossier City comprise Louisiana’s third largest metropolitan area. The twin cities and surrounding communities have emerged as the thriving economic, educational, medical and cultural hub of Northwest Louisiana.
Shreveport sits 20 miles from Texas and 50 miles from Arkansas – three hours east of Dallas and five hours northwest of New Orleans. Within a day’s drive, businesses can access more than 40 million consumers in some of America’s largest markets.
