Why New Orleans?
New Orleans is an amazing & very social place to live... you will never be without something fun to do. Music Festivals, Food Festivals, crawfish boils, parties abound. Kickball, Frisbee Golf, Soccer, Tennis, Biking, OR head down to the swamps to do some gator watching... We are also just a short drive to the beaches of the Gulf or minutes from boating on one of our beautiful lakes. But there's another side of New Orleans that is not known by all and that is it's growing tech community paired by being listed as the top city for entrepreneurs. This combination is making for an exciting and amazing time to be in New Orleans. So if all the food, music and festivals aren't of interest to you no worries we have plenty of meetup groups & hackathons - you will not feel like you are without like minded people!
Listed by Forbes in 2013 as one of the top tech cities in America, New Orleans is rapidly growing to be known as a city poised to be the next big tech hub, coined as the Silicon Bayou. Forbes also listed New Orleans as attracting the "Biggest Brain Magnets" and Travel & Leisure thinks we're pretty hip. AND New Orleans has a low cost of living less than the national average and 121% less than New York City!
