LSU Alumni’s LED Lights Go Global
LEDs have been a boon to Louisiana State University graduates Bin Yu and Leo Zhao, who first started out with the technology in their senior year, selling LED-outfitted T-shirts in New Orleans’ French Quarter. The duo now have their own LED light bulb business, and have just gone global. Three years ago, Bin Yu and Leo Zhao, 2010 graduates of the University, got their start at the Louisiana Business and Technology Center’s student incubator, and now the two entrepreneurs have gone global. Yu and Zhao’s LED light business began during their senior years when they started creating and selling LED T-shirts in the New Orleans French Quarter. The lights on the shirts synchronized with the noise coming from themed LSU and Saints apparel. After the success of their T-shirt sales, they decided to expand into the light bulb business.
