Weeklong celebration of entrepreneurship in New Orleans to be held March 24-29
Idea Village recently unveiled plans for the 10th anniversary of New Orleans Entrepreneur Week (NOEW), a weeklong celebration of business, innovation, and entrepreneurship. In the past decade, NOEW has engaged global luminaries, featured local thought leaders, and showcased hundreds of startups. This year’s event will highlight the significance that entrepreneurship has had on the city of New Orleans with the theme: Connect in a City Like No Other.
This year’s NOEW slate of events, made possible by sponsor JPMorgan Chase, covers a wide range of topics including marketing strategy, women in tech, diversity and inclusion, digital literacy and more. Announced headliners include:
- Jim Coulter, Founding Partner and Co-CEO at TPG Capital
- Kevin Dawson, Vice-President of GE Digital
- Kevin Lin, Co-founder of Twitch
- Gabrielle Toledano, Chief People Officer at Tesla
and future headliners to be announced in the coming weeks.
All of NOEW’s citywide events are free and open to the public to attend. NOEW will take place March 24-29, and following that, The Idea Village will introduce the NOEW Summit — two days of educational sessions, keynote speakers, pitch competitions, and networking events.
