Idea Acceleration Spotlight: Welcome to College, the Startup Optimizing School Visits

Lookfar LogoThe Idea Acceleration Spotlight is a new partnership between Silicon Bayou News (SBN) and LookFar, an idea acceleration company that partners with both startups and established businesses to execute game-changing ideas through their software development and business analysis expertise.

New Orleans startup Welcome to College is maximizing the impact of college visits for students and educators. Founded by Justin Bayer, the company provides online, mobile and in-person coaching programs to help improve the college campus visits.

Bayer has been making waves in New Orleans. He participated in Launch Program with 4.0 Schools, and was then accepted accelerator program with The Idea Village, producers of New Orleans Entrepreneur Week (NOEW).

“Being in a place that has the energy to bring educators and entrepreneurs together to tackle education issues, and the opportunity for learning in so many ways was what drew me back,” Bayer said following his official relocation from Ohio to New Orleans.

Welcome to College is also one of 12 startups selected to participate in The Big Idea on Friday, the culmination of NOEW.
