A good friend of mine from UCLA gave a speech in our first quarter about New Orleans, his hometown. Through his speech, I learned so much about the city and how much more complex and multifaceted it is than the media or tourism industry makes it out to be.
When he recently told me about the NOLABound program, I was really excited. It a program to position New Orleans as a great place for start-ups and to increase awareness of the entrepreneurial culture in the city. I was really impressed with the initiative and want to do my part in helping to revive the city and increase entrepreneurship in areas outside the major tech hubs already out there. My friend encouraged me to apply to the program, and so I did.
