“New Orleans is an incredibly hot entrepreneurial community, ranked throughout the country for its new venture activity, and our style of business consulting fits perfectly in this space. We understand the importance of an entrepreneur being able to tell his/her story in the numbers that attracts investment, both equity and debt, and we manage the process of proposal drafting and presentation so the business owner can focus on the day-to-day process of growing a company,” says Taffet.
