Entrepreneurial mindsets and an overall innovative current continues to electrify the city of New Orleans and business opportunities throughout the state. Last week, contributor Adriana Lopez was featured, once again, on Forbes.com. Her piece, America’s New Frontier For Business Opportunity, details why Louisiana is such an attractive state to do business in and the brain gain that is happening here now.
She explains the specific growth in New Orleans, writing, “from entrepreneurial growth, the progression of the digital media and biotechnology industries, and the development of the new multi-billion dollar medical corridor, New Orleans has witnessed an economic renaissance that is bringing new companies and investments into the region for the first time.”
From early-stage startups to regional level businesses, there is no doubting the economic renaissance here. Adriana gives examples of this transformation with Worknola.com, GNO Inc., and the Louisiana Economic Development (LED), which created Louisiana FastStart.
Adriana concludes, “as we go into 2013, the country faces a number of economic challenges… however, there are still opportunities for individual and business prosperity, whether it’s in Louisiana or elsewhere in the country. What is important to note is that the future is not bleak, and the opportunities are available.”
