Bryant Istre




Prior to Tech Elevator I was...

an intern at Launch Pad.

The students at Tech Elevator...

galvanize me to do my best.

The best part of my day is...

learning from the best on how to create mission-driven success.


Bryant is passionate about working with mission-driven companies aiming to change the world. He's a graduate of Loyola University New Orleans where he received a BA in Political Science with an accompanying minor in Economics. Originally from Lafayette, Louisiana, his first out-of-state venture is with the analyst team in Cleveland.

Bryant comes to Tech Elevator with immense excitement about the capabilities of reskilling programs; His collegiate research focused on the emergence of the knowledge economy and its potential implications for the country as a whole. Throughout his four years at Loyola, he found himself drawn to roles with lots of interpersonal interaction. For his final year of college, he interned with Launch Pad, a coworking space in New Orleans, to help them with various business development initiatives.

For fun Bryant enjoys walks, listening to podcasts (How I Built This is a favorite), yoga, and playing the occasional video game.
