Submit application to compete for over $40K in resources during NOEW
The application process is now open for the 4th Annual Downtown NOLA Arts-Based Business Pitch. Candidates may submit an application online to compete for over $40K in resources to assist in their business venture. The submission deadline is January 15.
As a Strategic Partner of the 2016 Entrepreneur Season, spearheaded by The Idea Village, the DDD along with Creative Alliance of New Orleans and Louisiana Cultural Economy Foundation will host the Downtown NOLA Arts-Based Business Pitch during New Orleans Entrepreneur Week 2016, the premier annual business festival, on March14.
The Business Pitch is aimed at identifying and supporting entrepreneurs that have an arts-based project or product situated in the creative, architecture, technology, digital media or film/entertainment fields that benefits the Downtown Development District and is scalable. The DDD, CANO, and LCEF are seeking arts-based businesses (or business ideas) that highlight the superior resources that Downtown New Orleans offers. Businesses should, ideally, serve to enhance way-finding and experiences in the built environment for everyday walking and living in Downtown New Orleans.
