NOLA.io: The Event You Don’t Want to Miss During NOLA Tech Week

Part storytelling soiree, part pitch event, NOLA.io is bringing together the New Orleans startup community for an evening of awesomeness during NOLA TECH WEEK, a series of events across our beloved city that starts next week. Expect good people, good companies and oh yeah, DAMN good cocktails.

How did Nola.io come about? Read on.

I registered the domain a couple of years ago, intending to build a site for the New Orleans tech community. I talked with friends about making it a resource for engineers, discussed turning it into a directory of startups, and even thought about turning it into a code school. All talk, no action, which we know is not my/our style. This called for a change.

We got right to work. We picked a font, created a sign-up form, and pitched the event to the Revelry team and the krewe organizing NOLA TECH WEEK. There was an opening for next Monday, so BOOM: Nola.io was a go. The first of its kind, we’re bringing together likeminded entreprenurial souls for an evening of storytelling, shark tank-style pitching, music and – of course – booze. This IS New Orleans, after all.

We’re excited about this event, because even as our client base continues to grow, we maintain our own entrepreneurial spirit here at Revelry. As we do in all of our work, we take pride in jumping in, reiterating our core values, and supporting the community we love and are collaborating with. We’re fortunate that we’ve had the opportunity to work with incredibly talented developers, designers, musicians, artists, technologists, educators, entrepreneurs, and investors. This is who you’ll find on Monday at NoLa.io. We hope you can join to share stories, triumphs, frustrations – and libations! – as we collectively build the next wave of industry, in New Orleans, together.

So please join us for an evening of Revelry.
