Ochsner Innovation Stage

How do you blend a high-tech business model with old-fashioned values? How do you ensure commitment to those values when you are driving forward with an unprecedented growth agenda filled with logistical and technical challenges? Tulane undergraduate and law alum Stella Templo has been with WeWork since its earliest days, serving in various roles, including chief of staff and on the senior legal team. As we launch our NOEW Summit discussions on building better businesses that are high-growth, high-tech and high-touch all at once, there’s no better place to start than with the origins of one of the fastest growing start-ups in the world.
