Glad you asked! Our goal is to provide a balanced suite of programs for all NOEW attendees to enjoy. For most content hosted on our stages at NOEW, we turn to thought leaders and community members like you! You can apply until October 13, 2018, 11:59pm CST.
The core programming at NOEW is presented in a variety of 30-minute and one-hour sessions that range in topic from tactical business skills to elevating entrepreneurship and innovation through broader community conversations. Below are examples of session formats types that could be available on the NOEW 2018 calendar lineup:
Our goal is to bring impactful speakers to the stage to give talks that foster learning, inspiration, wonder – and provoke critical conversations that truly matter to New Orleans and beyond. Ideal candidates will share messages that are clear, concise, original, and fresh. We look for talks that showcase fresh approaches to solving critical community problems, challenge notions of what’s possible, and highlights new research and methodologies that speak to the entrepreneur in us all. Particular areas of focus include: diversity and inclusion, raising capital, the future of New Orleans, and the next era of tech.
All submissions enter a rigorous review and judging process by The Idea Village staff once the applications close on October 13, 2017 at 11:59 PM CST. Our selection criteria include: speaker/presenter qualification, quality of content, relevance to NOEW audience, and relevance to national developments in entrepreneurship and innovation.
Head over to the NOEW 2017 Schedule to take a look at past NOEW speakers and their awesome sessions!
After submissions close on October 13, 2017 at 11:59 PM CST, The Idea Village Staff will immediately begin the review and judging process. All speakers that have been selected to present at NOEW will be notified during the last week in November. Keep in mind that space on the NOEW calendar is limited, so even some of the best submissions may not be selected based on space availability and thematic consistency.
