In 2017, the New Orleans Business Alliance (NOLABA) launched the inaugural New Orleans Health Innovators Challenge, and they’re getting ready for round two. The program consists of a pitch competition for healthcare startups and was designed to drive healthcare innovation and investment in New Orleans. The 2019 New Orleans Health Innovators Challenge launches this week, and Omega is proud to be a program partner.

To kick of the 2019 Challenge, NOLABA is hosting a launch party on Friday, November 9 at the New Orleans Jazz Market. The event will feature remarks from NOLABA, an unveiling of this year’s Challenge Statement—the focus of this year’s Challenge—and a fireside chat with Dr. Lowry Curley, president & CEO of AxoSim. The morning will close with a networking lunch. After Friday’s launch event, applications for the 2019 Health Innovators Challenge will open.

Omega is excited to be involved with a program whose title sponsors are Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana and Ochsner Health System, and we’re excited to have our name among the other program partners: LaunchpadThe Warehouse and The New Orleans BioInnovation Center. Omega looks forward to Friday’s launch party and to meeting innovators and leaders in the healthcare field.

Friday’s event is free and open to the public. Click here for more information.
