365 New Orleans: INNO



Innovation doesn’t just happen. It thrives when the best minds in technology, business, and entrepreneurship come together to exchange ideas and solve problems. As the global leader for innovation-centered programming, INNO is focused on collaboration and innovation in strategic partnerships between startups and corporations. Join us where innovation grows from a thoughtful concept to an impactful result. Join us in creating a collaborative global community. Join us in New Orleans this April.



1. What products and services do you offer? 

INNO is a tech conference focused on collaboration and innovation in strategic partnerships between startups and larger corporations. The Collision Conference (also tech oriented) has been held here during this time window for a few years, and following Collision’s departure, we aim to restore a well-curated space for entrepreneurs, corporate innovators, and technology professionals. INNO was designed to be an event where attendees can make meaningful connections, explore opportunities for collaboration, and find the partners, tools, and resources they need. We’ve worked very hard to put together three days (plus some community events) of programming and activities between Jazz Fest weekends that are eye-opening, engaging, and impactful. 


2. How long have you been in business? 

11 months ago when we got word that Collision was leaving New Orleans, a group of creative, technology, and economic development leaders wondered why we were mourning the loss of an event that never felt very authentic to New Orleans.

We know that the Gulf South is home to a great network of solution-oriented individuals and we wanted to continue to foster and grow technology, innovation, and entrepreneurship by connecting people to the resources they need, some of which may be outside the region. Our speaker lineup (we have speakers from all across the country) reflects our intention to help attendees expand their business networks geographically and across different business sectors.

4. What is lesser known about your business that you wish more people knew? 

We are establishing a foundation and a community from which future iterations of our series of events can grow. We need the help of the entire New Orleans community to do this. If you can’t afford a ticket to this year’s event please reach out to hello@innoconf.com to find out more about community tickets and volunteer opportunities.

5. Lagniappe Info. 

NNO bridges the gap between entrepreneurs and corporations to forge connections that matter. Together, we will be building a community of diverse, solution-oriented corporate innovators, technologists and entrepreneurs who are ready to change the world through collaboration and strategic partnerships between startups and corporations.
