NOLA 100 Continues

Publisher’s Note

New Orleans Entrepreneur Week (NOEW) celebrates its 8th anniversary this month, and during this year’s event NOLA 100 will unveil its next class of members.

Created by co-founder of Turbo Squid, Matt Wisdom, along with other individuals and organizations, NOLA 100 is designed to highlight a total of 100 leading New Orleans entrepreneurs which have gained significant traction and have made a lasting impact on the local entrepreneurship movement.  

In September 2015, the first 29 entrepreneurs were inducted as the inaugural class, and this month during NOEW, the NOLA 100 committee will introduce their 2016 class, with the goal to building up to 100 entrepreneurs by the city’s tricentennial in 2018.  

This year, Biz New Orleans is proud to partner with NOLA 100, as well as Loyola University, EO Louisiana, LookFar and Idea Village, to continue showcasing New Orleans as a place where businesses cannot only be created, but grow to sustainability.

If you would like to nominate someone for future NOLA 100 classes, please contact Mary Hill at EO Louisiana via email and I hope to see you at some NOEW events March 11 – 18.
