Entrepreneurs and Registrants Prepare for NOEW with New Idea Village App

The Idea Village app, which is now available in the app store, features 40 entrepreneur profiles and information about the six pitch competitions scheduled for New Orleans Entrepreneur Week (NOEW), March 16-22, 2013. The app was designed by Chris Boyd, Founder of Apptitude, and officially launched today in partnership with NOLA Media Group.

The Idea Village will continue to build upon the app, as information about entrepreneurs and pitches will be accessible year round. It also allows users to interact with company founders, read the latest NOEW news, and vote on their favorite ventures.

“Since 2000, The Idea Village has focused on building a platform that engages a powerful network to support the growth of New Orleans-based startups,” said Tim Williamson, Co-founder and CEO of The Idea Village. “The Idea Village App allows this robust network of professionals and investors to engage directly with entrepreneurs throughout the annual Entrepreneur Season and we look forward to adding new features after NOEW.”
