Surveys for Annual GNO Startup Report Due March 31

Editor’s Note: The deadline has been extended to April 15, 2022.

The Greater New Orleans (GNO) Startup Report is an award-winning initiative, led by the Albert Lepage Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at Tulane University, to gather data about startups in the Greater New Orleans region. 

The Report’s goal is to provide a comprehensive overview of the region’s entrepreneurial ecosystem that facilitates insights on revenue and hiring needs and provides clues to what it will take to help the businesses grow. 

Last year’s GNO Startup Report detailed the upwards of $2 billion in startup exits by local and regional companies including TurboSquid and Levelset. And, of course, the state’s first unicorn company, Lucid, that sold for $1.1 billion last fall. 

Surveys for the 2022 GNO Startup Report are due Thursday, March 31. All data collected is anonymized and only reported in aggregate. 

Entrepreneurs encouraged to apply must be located in the Greater New Orleans region, have an annual recurring revenue of less than $60,000,000 or have a business that is less than five years old, or self identify as participating in the region’s entrepreneurship and innovation ecosystem. 

“The data serves as a tool to affect policy, attract investment, apply for grants, implement programs and measure success,” shared The Lepage Center.
