Applications are Open for the Inaugural NOLA Health Innovators Challenge

Through a partnership with the New Orleans Business Alliance, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana, Ochsner Health System and the City of New Orleans, the Big Easy has the NOLA Health Innovators Challenge (NOLAHI).

NOLAHI  is designed to connect the city’s healthcare stakeholders with innovative entrepreneurs with health solutions. Applications for the Challenge are open now through January 15. Accepted entrepreneurs will then be featured at New Orleans Entrepreneur Week and have a chance to win cash and in-kind prizes for their health solutions.

NOLAHI is another proof point that economic development matters because people matter,” said Quentin L. Messer, Jr., president and CEO of the New Orleans Business Alliance. “More than the promise of attracting the most creative digital health companies to New Orleans, NOLAHI’s potential to transform health outcomes of patients throughout the state is why NOLABA is so honored to be a part of this initiative.”
