Rebirth of a Dream
This issue marks the rebirth of what started in 2003 as a new way of telling the stories behind the successes of New Orleans businesses – Biz New Orleans.
Since Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans has transformed itself in many ways. The changing business climate here has received a lot of focus, and people all around the nation are paying attention.
My professional career has spanned the publishing and media industry for the past 25 years. In 2006, during post-Katrina New Orleans, I leveraged a minority ownership in a predecessor company, and along with some new partners formed Renaissance Publishing. We created a dynamic new business to focus on telling the story of the rebirth of New Orleans.
Renaissance Publishing is a niche publisher with titles like New Orleans Homes and Lifestyles, the only home magazine in New Orleans; St. Charles Avenue, the city’s only philanthropic magazine; and New Orleans Magazine, the award-winning chronicler of life in our city. Now there’s Biz New Orleans, the sole business magazine in New Orleans.
Our goal with Biz New Orleans is to produce a first class magazine covering all facets of the New Orleans business scene and highlighting its people and the city’s ongoing transformation.
I invite you to e-mail me at Todd@BizNewOrleans.com and let me know what you think of our premiere edition.
