NEW ORLEANS (Wednesday, August 26, 2015) – Today, Matt Wisdom, Co-founder of TurboSquid.com and The Idea Village, along with the nonprofit organizations driving New Orleans’ entrepreneurial ecosystem, unveiled the inaugural members of the NOLA100. The NOLA100 is a group of startups that have gained significant traction and have been recognized as leaders of the local entrepreneurship movement. The goal is to reach the 100th company by 2018, New Orleans’ tri-centennial. New members will be added each August in conjunction with The Idea Village’s Entrepalooza event.
“The entrepreneurial movement is well on its way to becoming a significant part of the GDP of New Orleans,” said Wisdom. “It’s time to recognize these entrepreneurs, their companies, and the impact they are having in diversifying our economy.”
