Ochsner Innovation Stage

David Olk doesn’t shy away from sharing the good, the bad and the ugly of venture-backed entrepreneurship. He co-founded ShopKeep, which raised over $150 million in capital and grew to be one of New York’s largest SaaS platforms. He is also an investor, advisor or board member to more than 30 well-funded companies. Now, he continues to apply the lessons he has learned to his newest venture, Voray – a curated space for senior professionals to unplug and build authentic relationships. During this Fireside Chat, led by Adam Zuckerman, Olk will share his insights on “Failing Forward” – from the founder’s and the investor’s perspectives – and what he sees as opportunities for startups in New Orleans.
