Good Monday Mornin’

I hope everyone is staying cool this summer. We’re right around the corner from Saints getting kicked off and an uptick in the startup scene calendar.

This week I wanted to shout out the great project work done by the folks at BarCampNOLA 4 last weekend. They launched a new site called NOLAdex and if you’re not on their yet, you should be. There are a lot of attempts at mapping the startup and tech community ecosystem lately, and this is one of the richest and best experiences I’ve seen. Congrats to everyone who made it happen.

Please remember to email me if you have any news to share or events you want to make it into the StartupDigest.
