StayLocal, Greater New Orleans’ independent business alliance, will host NOLA Know-How, an event to showcase business-to-business (B2B) companies. The free event takes place on Thursday, June 16 at the People’s Health New Orleans Jazz Market and will feature TED-style talks by local business thought leaders based on the theme “Survival of the Fittest”.

NOLA Know-How will take place from 4 to 7 p.m. Doors open at 4 p.m. for networking and browsing at the resource fair; talks will begin promptly at 6 p.m. People’s Health New Orleans Jazz Market is located at 1436 OC Haley Blvd.

“If you want the insights only experience can teach you, this is an event you don’t want to miss,” says NOLA Know-How organizer and StayLocal interim program manager, Meredith Cherney. “From banking, accounting, and web design to background checks and payroll providers, New Orleans has so many local service provider options. This event aims to raise the profile of these businesses and help business owners take advantage of our local knowledge base.”

The speakers include:

  • Evie Poitevent of Feet First
  • Michelle Ingram of Zeus’ Place and Freret Street Market
  • Lauren Anderson of Lauren C. Anderson Consulting Services, LLC
  • Richard Estrada of Crescent City Packaging
  • Daniel Esses of Dryades Public Market

NOLA Know-How is tailored towards business owners and entrepreneurs and is free and open to anyone interested in learning from successful local leaders. The talks and resource fair are the culmination of StayLocal’s Source NOLA initiative, a summer-long campaign 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.
