The NOLA Brain Gain

May 20, 2013
Grant Morris / It's New Orleans

The New Orleans business boom is not a coincidence, it's a campaign. NOLAbound successfully recruited young entrepreneurs to New Orleans.

Meet two of them on this week's Out to Lunch: Chris Boyd, founder of mobile app building company Apptitude, and Marianne Rodriguez, founder of fashion illustration studio MarketteNOLA.

One local nonprofit is helping make public transit in New Orleans a smoother ride, and its latest project will let people pinpoint just when that next streetcar will come along.
