Central to New Orleans Entrepreneur Week is the IDEAcorps program, The Idea Village’s nationally recognized experiential learning program through which MBA students provide direct strategic consulting to New Orleans-based startups during their spring breaks. During NOEW, IDEAcorps teams are invited to partner with select entrepreneurs, serving as their executive management team, while simultaneously enjoying the rich culture and lifestyle of New Orleans. To date, the IDEAcorps program has engaged over 500 individuals from over 20 business schools across the United States. This year, teams of students from six schools will each be paired with a high-impact New Orleans startup and work with them during NOEW to tackle a critical business challenge or leverage a strategic opportunity. The partnerships for NOEW 2014 include:
“It is exciting to see top MBAs from around the country competing for this hands-on entrepreneurial program in New Orleans,” said Sara Thomas, 2009 IDEAcorps alumna. “IDEAcorps is a chance for MBA students to gain true startup experience, while contributing to the growth of New Orleans’ entrepreneurial community. The program has grown steadily since its inception because both the MBA teams and entrepreneurs receive tremendous impact.”
IDEAcorps is invitation-only program for both entrepreneurs and student teams.
