Registration Open For The 2018 JEDCO Challenge Powered By Greater Lakeside Corporation


NEW ORLEANS — On Tuesday, May 15 Greater Lakeside Corporation will host the 2018 JEDCO Challenge. This Jefferson Parish-based pitch competition features five dynamic startups, all vying for a business-boosting prize package of $20,000 and donated professional services.

Entrepreneurs have just seven minutes to convince a panel of regional business leaders and everyone in the audience that they deserve to walk away with the winnings. Your vote will help determine which innovative startup takes home $20,000 at the end of the day.
