And the Countdown Begins!

Friday marked the official unveiling of New Orleans Entrepreneur Week 2010. And, in case you missed it, what a start it was!

While local entrepreneurs Bayou Brew, Big Easy Blends, and Jack and Jake's served up their respective specialties—delicious iced teas and margaritas-in-a-pouch complemented the office’s wide selection of fresh fruit and vegetables—many of the entrepreneurs and business leaders driving New Orleans’s innovative economic resurgence united to celebrate the introduction of this year’s event, which promises to help define New Orleans as one of the most progressive and promising business hubs in the nation. Successful New Orleans Entrepreneurial Challenge alumni, such as Naked Pizza (who are now taking their product national with the support of Mark Cuban!), joined other innovators and local business leaders for the press conference, where the participating organizations and week’s activities were announced.

Also, as many of the nation’s most innovative entrepreneurial minds prepare to gather in New Orleans for Entrepreneur Week 2010, here’s an interesting article that will help explain why they should be—and why they are—coming.
