In New Orleans and the Louisiana Coast, we are seeing an increase in the challenges to antiquated processes of how we work with our greatest challenge: water. We are bringing together the representatives from the Changing Course design competition, the Water Challenge, and the Tulane Dead Zone prize competition, each in their various developing stages, in order to demonstrate the importance of entrepreneurship to address our region’s water issues and the type of entrepreneurs they seek to present sustainable solutions to their goals.

Potential entrepreneurs, stakeholders, and those generally interested in water solutions to understand better what goes into creating these prize contests, the organization’s expectations, and their potential goals for each competition depending on the stage of development are encouraged to attend!
