Registration - $50

Arc of Greater New Orleans (ArcGNO) is serving citizens with intellectual disabilities since 1953. For over 30 years, ArcGNO has created wage-earning jobs for individuals with intellectual disabilities by recycling Mardi Gras throws. ArcGNO collected more than 160 tons of Mardi Gras throws in 2019, saving them from New Orleans drains and landfills. Now, they need your help to sort and package them!

 

The more recycled throws they sell, the more jobs they help to create for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. In this learning journey, volunteer at the Mardi Gras Recycle Center and learn about ArcGNO – a successful and sustainable social venture that has been changing NOLA and making a difference in the community.

In a 2017 Innovation that Matters Report by the US Chamber of Commerce and 1776, New Orleans ranked #1 in Connectivity and #2 in Startup Culture. Finish your time in New Orleans by meeting with some of the organizations that make up this connected and collaborative entrepreneurial ecosystem. Your journey will start with hearing how the A. B. Freeman School of Business at Tulane University is equally committed to serving the broader entrepreneurial community as they are their students. You’ll hear about how they leverage local and national resources to provide practical education to students interested in entrepreneurship and how they bring those same resources to the broader community in the form of executive education, mentorship, data collection, and New Orleans Entrepreneur Week (an annual event they co-produce with The Idea Village). The next stop will lead you to Camelback Ventures, an accelerator that identifies, develops, and promotes early-stage underrepresented entrepreneurs with the aim to increase individual and community education, and general wealth. You’ll hear how they support underrepresented education entrepreneurs who are leaders of innovative school models, creators of thoughtful programming, and game-changing technology. Your final stop will be The Idea Village, the organization that kick-started this ecosystem and is committed to supporting regional startups and the big thinkers that power them. You’ll hear how they leverage the lean methodology to grow innovative business that will bring about an exceptional future for New Orleans.
