Entrepreneur Season is in full swing. Thanks to the events surrounding New Orleans Entrepreneur Week, everyone seems to be buzzing about startups and new business ventures. Just as this week’s excitement dies down, the lessons learned from #NOEW2013 via tweets and blog posts can be put into action. Practice perfects, and this gives entrepreneurs one more chance to hone their ideas before applying to New Orleans' Accelerator Programs, like those offered by Propeller, IdeaVillage, and Launchpad.
Now there is no need to wait! Startup Weekend New Orleans swoops in on the heels of NOEW (April 5th thru 7th) providing an outlet for those with ideas or an itch to take part in building the next big thing.
Whatever your area of expertise, be it programming prowess, marketing magic, or propensity for problem solving, we want YOU! Teams will plan pitches and perfect ideas together as they work toward building a viable business in just 54 hours.
This year's judges include:
- Robbie Vitrano, co-founder of Idea Village
