Wednesday: NODE Launch Event

NODE (New Orleans Digital Entertainment) is a new initiative designed to support the growing cluster of Digital Entertainment companies in New Orleans. By supporting the existing cluster, and providing the opportunity for Digital Entertainment companies outside of New Orleans to engage, NODE will be the connecting force between Digital Entertainment companies in any stage of development and the resources they need to grow in New Orleans. Attend the launch on Wednesday, October 26th at the Board of Trade from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. for drinks and light refreshments to learn more about NODE and how you can join.

Wednesday: How to Launch Your Start-up Idea For Less Than $5000

Need help getting your startup idea off the ground? Come join Skillshare Co-Founder, Michael Karnjanaprakorn, as he shares his tips and insights on how to take your concept from idea to launch without writing one line of back-end code. He launched the first version of Skillshare leveraging existing tools that already existed to test our idea (so you don’t need a technical co-founder in the early days!) The class is Wednesday, October 26th from 6:00-7:30 pm at Launch Pad. There are still a few tickets available, so get yours now!


We’ve already posted a few times on TribeCon coming up this Thursday – but we wanted to make sure you didn’t forget it’s happening THIS THURSDAY. Yes, I said it twice because it’s going to be that big. TribeCon is held annually in association with the VooDoo Music Experience and will be from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm on Thursday, October 27th at City Park. The speakers are off the chain and I’ll be there running around in a volunteer shirt – so do what you’ve gotta do to be in the audience and don’t forget to use the “SBN” discount code for $10 off your ticket.
