New Orleans is growing in so many ways, and we are experiencing progress and innovation. The most creative and ambitious minds in our city are forging a path to a better future and entrepreneurship is a big part of that. Our city has been named one of the best cities for entrepreneurs, and it’s easy to see why. New Orleans is in the middle of a renaissance and is open to new ideas, and in addition to being a very affordable place for young, creative minds, it is an incredibly desirable place to live. We provide the whole picture – and we do it in our own unique way – and people around the country, including big investors, are taking notice. Our growth affects perception of us, and as our good reputation spreads, more and more opportunities are made available to us.
