CEO, Heidi Raines, featured as speaker at New Orleans Entrepreneur Week

Business executives, entrepreneurs, renowned venture capitalists, and global thought leaders gather in New Orleans each year for New Orleans Entrepreneur Week (NOEW) to share best practices and celebrate entrepreneurship.  Throughout the eight day advance thinking conference, NOEW engages a dynamic discussion, debate, education, competition and celebration with a global network of entrepreneurs, investors, corporations, non-profits, students and professionals to support growing companies and elevate entrepreneurial successes.
