NOEW Kicks Off Saturday with BizCampNOLA 4, an Unconference for Entrepreneurs

bizcampnolaBizCampNOLA is an ‘unconference’ sandwiched between SXSW and the heart of New Orleans Entrepreneur Week that will bring together entrepreneurs to help them share tips for success. The 4th annual event will kick off this Sunday, March 16th from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm as the first official calendar event of NOEW.

There is no set schedule or list of topics the planners will discuss. Instead, BizCamp is an informal want to connect to fellow entrepreneurs. According to the BizCampNOLA website, “Rather than featuring professional conference speakers, sessions are led by other entrepreneurs like you to give you the best down-to-earth, practical advice from people who’ve been through the same struggles you’re facing.”

To get an idea of how the event will run and how it has run in the past, click here. A few of the sessions last year included:

  • Basics of Business Plans
  • Five things entrepreneurs do to ruin their companies
  • Raising money in New Orleans
  • Web tools & iPhone apps to help you take control of your personal finances
  • Preparing to raise equity; how to protect your ownership position
  • How to build your niche doing what you love
  • Basics of Marketing on the Web
  • Monetizing Content on the Web

BizCamp is completely free and includes a complimentary breakfast with coffee. The purpose is to connect and teach entrepreneurs and it is meant to be a fun experience.

BizCamp is co-sponsored by 504ward, the Black MBA Association of New Orleans, GNO Inc., Idea Village, Launch Pad, Net Squared New Orleans, Social Entrepreneurs of New Orleans, and the Urban League of New Orleans’ Women’s Business Resource Center.
