Raise Your Glass
Every day I come to work and open my emails and I’m bombarded with news of people and companies doing incredible things in Southeast Louisiana. It’s been such an honor to introduce so many of them to you through the pages of this magazine over the past almost three years.
One of my favorite parts of Biz is the “Why Didn’t I Think of That?” feature, where we highlight a creative local business idea and the person or people behind its success. This month, it feels almost like we’ve added an extra 15 “Why Didn’t I” mini features with our first-ever group of Biz New Orleans New & Notables.
The 17 people we’ve chosen to honor hail from almost every industry — including dining, technology, biotechnology, trade, medicine, event production and even our local seafood industry.
I invite you to learn more about the husband and wife who changed laws to open the first-ever restaurant and distillery, the man helping businesses reach consumers through virtual reality, and the woman who developed a way to help recruiters save time and money by interviewing candidates via video.
All of these innovative professionals will be honored at an event at The Jaxson on July 8 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tickets are $30 and include hors d’oeuvres, wine and beer. For more information, visit BizNewOrleans.com/New&Notables.
Please join us in congratulating them for all of their contributions to our region.
