NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune, in partnership with The Idea Village, is now serving as the official voting platform for The Big Idea pitch competition, New Orleans Entrepreneur Week’s culminating event, with online polling that runs Tuesday, Feb. 24 through Monday, March 23. The Big Idea is a unique New Orleans-style pitch extravaganza, featuring 12 of New Orleans’ most promising startup ventures and a local, celebrity judging panel, complete with over 10 bars and entertainment.
Short capsules of all 22 nominated businesses and their entrepreneurial founders’ big ideas may be found at www.NOLA.com/big-idea, accompanied by an elevator pitch video recorded earlier this month in the NOLA.com production studio at One Canal Place.
A reader poll listing all 22 nominees is embedded in every Big Idea post during the voting period (see below). Readers may vote in favor of as many of their favorite nominees as they would like, up to a maximum of one vote per nominee per day.
