Vol. 24: The Inflection Point

The Inflection Point

The economic comeback of Greater New Orleans has been gaining steady momentum in the years since 2005. Today, broad evidence suggests that this progress is at an “Inflection Point”–on the brink of rapid acceleration in a number of key areas, including entrepreneurship, human talent, positive perception, and business development. This increasing rate of positive change presents an undeniable, and historic, opportunity for Greater New Orleans to achieve new levels of economic diversity and strength.

We have all of you to thank for bringing us to this inflection point. Indeed, when we consider all of the competitive advantages of Greater New Orleans–our low business costs, our attractive incentives, and our unique culture–it is our leadership that is truly driving this momentum. From our business CEOs to our elected officials, there is a degree of energy, ability, and alignment within our leadership that sets the “new” New Orleans apart, and on the path to success.

We invite you to view the “Greater New Orleans at the Inflection Point” video and to download the GNOi iPhone app , both unveiled during our recent Annual Meeting. These assets help us tell our region’s success story to the world. With your support, we have made it to this inflection point. With your support, we will accelerate through this inflection point and into the future. Our future.
