Entrepreneurs generate revenue and jobs in the economy and are magnets of talent and capital that connect a community to embrace change and tackle problems head-on. Our founders envisioned that new entrepreneurs would evolve into engaged civic leaders and pay it forward, ensuring that New Orleans would have a vibrant, inclusive community. But entrepreneurs cannot be successful in isolation. It takes a village. As embodied in our very name, the founders sought to catalyze a village, a community, an ecosystem that embraces new ideas and innovation in New Orleans. And that’s exactly what they did.
NEW ORLEANS FOSTERS A STRONG ENTREPRENEURIAL ECOSYSTEM.
AND CONTINUES TO GROW AS A PREMIER LOCATION FOR TECHNOLOGY INNOVATION.
The companies that graduate from our programs benefit from a vibrant and active angel network in our city, which has grown along with us over these many years. And after over a decade of producing NOEW, which began as a pitch event and has grown into the region’s leading conference on entrepreneurship and innovation, we are continuing to reinforce and connect our ecosystem in a way that is uniquely New Orleans.
