Meet the 5th Annual Silicon Bayou Startup Showcase Companies

The Silicon Bayou Startup Showcase is heading into its fifth year. This year’s showcase will take place at New Orleans’ newest co-working space, The Shop, on Wednesday, November 15. The science fair-style event is designed to highlight startups in New Orleans with innovative products and projects.

Past participating startups include Operation Spark, Girl’s Guide, Cleargistix, Think.Print 3D, Cajo Technologies, 52 Businesses, and many more.
