The partnership will offer attendees more of what they already expect while showcasing New Orleans as a destination for exploring new thinking, intellectual pursuits, and professional opportunities.  


New Orleans Entrepreneur Week (NOEW) – or “noh-wee!” as the locals pronounce it – kicks off Monday, March 11, and concludes Saturday, March 16. New this year, the inaugural 3rd Coast Venture Summit takes place Wednesday, March 13 – Friday, March 15, connecting investors with selected startups. The “crossover day” on Thursday, March 14 will include programming from both NOEW and New Orleans Book Festival at Tulane University.  

The New Orleans Book Festival at Tulane University runs from March 14-16 and will bring best-selling authors and thought leaders to Tulane's uptown campus for a multi-day celebration, including Family Day on Saturday, March 16. A true “Mardi Gras for the Mind,” the festival convenes readings, panel discussions and keynote speeches.
