From Area Development Magazine:
â€œWe choose Baton Rouge and Louisiana because we know the talent and dedication of the people here. […] At Twistlock, our Baton Rouge team helped protect clouds you stream movies from, process mobile payments, and fly in the F-35. We know there are great people here with deep technical skills and real customer knowledge and we look forward to creating many more jobs with Gutsy. I also want to thank Rep. Garret Graves for his help navigating the federal side as we establish another international tech company in Baton Rouge.â€ […]
â€œLouisiana has the No. 1 tech talent pipeline in the country, built on partnerships with our higher education institutions. […] We are quickly establishing our state as a hub for technology and innovation. I thank Gutsy for choosing Louisiana as the base of its next tech start-up, and creating quality, high-paying jobs for the stateâ€™s talented workforce.â€ […]
â€œWe had the pleasure of working with Gutsyâ€™s founding team on their Twistlock entry into Baton Rouge in 2018, and we are thrilled they have chosen Baton Rouge again for their newest venture. […] This team is truly exceptional as they have raised an impressive $51 million in seed funding for their cybersecurity solutions. Their decision to locate Gutsy here is a representation of our growing tech sector and highlights our talent pipeline for meaningful careers in computer science. We look forward to their continued successes in our region.â€AREA DEVELOPMENT MAGAZINE
