Last night Picnic Media had the pleasure of speaking with fantastic LaunchNOLA entrepreneurs with small business concepts in development. Our discussion with this group focused on the following.

  1. What advice would you give to a new entrepreneur?
  2. What community resources have you found to be most helpful?
  3. How did you get the funds you needed to get started?

We can’t wait to see each of these new businesses launch!
