NOLA Know-How is geared towards business owners and entrepreneurs and is free and open to anyone interested in learning from successful local business owners. The talks and resource fair are the culmination of StayLocal’s Source NOLA, a summer-long initiative encouraging businesses to switch to a local service provider in some area of their business. Through Source NOLA, StayLocal aims to better connect business owners to the local resources in New Orleans and raise awareness about the ways businesses can better engage with their local economy.
StayLocal members and attendees of the event will receive complimentary admission to Sage Summit, an $800 value. This national business networking conference is scheduled to take place in New Orleans from July 27-30 and will have hundreds of sessions and more than 70 speakers including General Colin L. Powell, Deepak Chopra, Tony Hawk, and Chad Hurley.
NOLA Know-How is free and open to the public. This event is made possible by the support of LCI Workers Compensation, LCIA, Xplore Federal Credit Union, and the Urban Conservancy as well as our partners Gambit, New Orleans Chamber of Commerce, and Eiffel Society.
