    Ahead of New Orleans Entrepreneur Week 2023, The Idea Village has launched a new
    podcast called Big Easy Ideas. Now available to listen on most major streaming platforms, new
    episodes are released weekly and are approximately 20 to 30 minutes long.. For more
    information and updates about new episodes, sign up for the Big Easy Ideas email list at

    The podcast features a host of industry-specific expertise — from entrepreneurship to
    climate tech to Web3, and more — to inspire founders at all stages and innovation enthusiasts
    across New Orleans, the Gulf Coast, and beyond. With a diverse range of talks from successful
    business leaders, startup founders, investors, culture bearers, and more – all recorded live at past
    NOEW events! – listening to Big Easy Ideas is a great way to get an early taste of what’s to
    come at NOEW 2023.

    The first episode features Patrick Comer, VILLAGEx alum, and founder of Lucid, New
    Orleans’ first startup company valued over $1 billion (thus dubbed a “unicorn”). Other episodes
    throughout the first season focus on topics such as Louisiana’s position and potential as a
    growing tech leader, Finance New Orleans’ Resilient New Orleans Innovation Fund to support
    green infrastructure and resiliency projects across the city, the experience of founders building
    their up-and-coming startup from New Orleans, and more.

    NOEW 2023 speakers have the opportunity to have their session potentially featured on
    the Big Easy Ideas podcast next year.
