NOLA Urban Entrepreneurship Forum

In response to the President's call for the United States to out-innovate, out-educate, and out-build the rest of the world, the White House is convening a series of forums to harness the best practices, creativity, and innovation of urban entrepreneurs from across the country.

On June 6, 2011, the White House co-hosted its first Urban Entrepreneurship Summit in Newark, NJ. Due to the overwhelming success of that first event, the White House has announced a series of Urban Entrepreneurship Forums in cities around the country, the next of which will be held in New Orleans, LA. The purpose of this event is to discuss best practices with urban entrepreneurs and hear their feedback on how the Obama Administration and the private sector can best support their growth and success in the global economy.

On Wednesday, July 20, 2011, Xavier University in New Orleans, LA will host a White House Urban Entrepreneurship Forum. In addition to the White House, the summit features a wide array of partners including The City of New Orleans, Xavier University of Louisiana, Urban League of Greater New Orleans, New Orleans Business Alliance, 100 Urban Entrepreneurs, Operation HOPE, and multiple federal agencies.

The next Urban Entrepreneurship Forum will be held in Atlanta, GA on Friday, July 29, 2011.
