Home Grown: Leveraging the Louisiana Business Experience on a National Scale

When it comes to unique industries and innovative ways of doing business, Louisiana doesn't look farther than its own backyard. Whether it's small family-owned businesses expanding into household names, capitalizing on the state's natural resources, geographic location and culture, or developing a thriving entrepreneurial environment for the next generation, Louisiana is redefining the term "home grown." In many ways, this singular business experience has helped shape the products and services coming out of Louisiana, ensuring our local companies are succeeding on a national level.

The Tulane Association of Business Alumni, the Freeman School of Business at Tulane University and IBERIABANK are pleased to present the 34th annual forum, Home Grown: Leveraging the Louisiana Business Experience on a National Scale, featuring an impressive line-up of national and local speakers who will provide insight on these industries and their secrets of success.
