Tulane University is helping build a stronger economy in New Orleans. Our focus on entrepreneurship and innovation is bringing new ideas and products to market. Technologies developed at Tulane have spun off 11 start-up companies in the Greater New Orleans area.
Our innovative programs like the Taylor Center for Social Innovation and Design Thinking, an annual Business Plan Competition, and our minor in Social Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship, as well as many programs geared towards entrepreneurship in the A. B. Freeman School of Business make a difference in the business community in New Orleans.
One of the newest, hottest, yet coolest places on campus is an old machine shop where design, invention, innovation and fabrication intersect to allow students to hold ideas in their hands! Visit the Maker Space and 3-D it up with a computer, printer and laser cutter. You’ll see what we mean.
