What a welcome!

Well it is on in NOLA. It is a pleasure to join the Idea Village blogging community as the representative from the Kellogg School of Management.

It’s the third day that I’ve been here getting to know the Idea Village and the entrepreneurship community in New Orleans. For the past two days, I have gotten immersed in New Orleans. We kicked off the trip with a crawfish boil, second line parade, home build in St. Bernard parish with the St. Bernard Project, tour of New Orleans, and dinner at CafĂ© Reconcile – among many other fantastic experiences.

Today, the team is excited to see our entrepreneur’s wares in local boutiques. Cecile Hardy, a New Orleans native, created NOLA Couture. NOLA Couture is a New Orleans based clothing line known for its unique prints that are inspired by New Orleans and the South.

So what am I most looking forward to today? It’s a long list: getting to know Cecile better, seeing her business in action, and capping off the day watching the Hornets play the Mavericks.

We’re starting this morning with a speech from Walter Isaacson, CEO of the Aspen Institute. See ya later!
