Share Building on The Foundation: New Orleans Tech Future that Drives the Economy

Event Details

Pro-business policies, strong tax incentives, and an influx of transplants eight years after Hurricane Katrina has positioned the New Orleans economy for transition. How can we build on this foundation to create sustainable opportunities for all New Orleans citizens.


Join Roosevelt Pipeline | New Orleans, in association with NOLA Tech Week and sponsored by iSeatz, for a panel discussion to identify how the city can take advantage of our changing economy. We will discuss current initiatives to support continued growth in New Orleans' emerging technology sector via coordinated efforts at the local level to address infrastructure, financial, and talent challenges. Enjoy cocktails with the panelists before the panel at 6:30, sponsored by iSeatz.
