New Orleans Entrepreneur Week (NOEW)
A celebration and showcase of entrepreneurship and innovation in New Orleans
March 23-27, 2020
The 12th annual New Orleans Entrepreneur Week (NOEW), co-produced by Tulane University's A. B. Freeman School of Business and The Idea Village, is the premier event celebrating the entrepreneurial spirit of our city, showcasing emerging trends and innovations and strengthening New Orleans' ties to the global business community. Its aim is to educate, facilitate connections and bring our community together around what is next.
NOEW 2020 is a week-long series of events, with community organized events Monday through Wednesday at locations throughout the city. The NOEW Summit, which will feature groundbreaking conversations with thought leaders and disrupters from around the country, will occur Thursday and Friday in downtown New Orleans.
Focus on Founders and Founding Teams
With nearly 800 featured startups and $4.6 million in prizes since 2009, NOEW provides educational opportunities including cutting-edge speakers, pitch competitions, networking events, panel discussions and 1:1 mentor and investor meetings to support innovative and entrepreneurial thinking in the region. NOEW 2020 will identify and leverage emerging trends and catalyze a forward-looking group of entrepreneurs, entrepreneurial teams, investors and business leaders.
Connect in a City Like No Other
In addition to being a showcase and celebration of entrepreneurship in our region, NOEW is both a vehicle for people with ties to New Orleans to "come home" and reinvest in our community, and a draw for new visitors to come to our region and make New Orleans an even more vibrant destination city for entrepreneurship and innovation.
