Sparks in New Orleans can turn into flames. A year and a half ago I started putting I Wish This Was stickers on vacant storefronts around NOLA. Thanks to Tulane University’s Urban Innovation Fellowship, we pushed that idea further and launched Neighborland in New Orleans in the summer of 2011. Since then we’ve been working with local residents, community groups, civic leaders, and others to test it, develop it, and try many things out. And now we’re growing thanks to great new partners, including The Obvious Corporation, True Ventures, Lerer Ventures, SV Angel, Crunchfund, and Voodoo Ventures! More about it in our Neighborland handbook.
