Social Entrepreneurship blossomed in New Orleans after Katrina
Written by 

Katrina-StBernardEntrepreneurship has blossomed in New Orleans after the waters of Katrina subsided.  With the 10th anniversary of Katrina approaching this month, below is a report called The Rise of the Social Entrepreneur Post-Katrina from The Data Center:

As the anniversary quickly approaches, we’re doubling down on our efforts to bring you the most comprehensive assessment of the progress of reforms and remaining challenges post-Katrina.

Today, The Data Center is releasing the eighth and ninth in a series of reports we are calling The New Orleans Index at Ten Collection.

The Rise of the Social Entrepreneur Post-Katrina is contributed by Andrea Chen of Propeller and Linda Usdin of Swamplilly, LLC.     

For all the tragedies that came with Hurricane Katrina and the levee failures, the ten years since have provided opportunities for social innovation and change. New Orleans is now growing many of the factors that promote social entrepreneurship, including favorable policies, reduced barriers to entry, access to capital and expertise, and a developing ecosystem of support. Increased civic confidence provides fuel for continued growth. If these efforts can demonstrate significant impact, they will have contributed in important ways towards making metro New Orleans’ economy inclusive and creative.
