New Orleans Business Alliance (NOLABA)

Established in 2010, the New Orleans Business Alliance (NOLABA) aims to unite a diverse community of stakeholders to catalyze job growth, create wealth, and build an equitable and sustainable economic future for New Orleans.  As a public-private partnership between the city and private investors from the local community, the nonprofit organization is led by a 17-member board of directors, composed of a cross section of New Orleans leaders, including the Mayor and representatives of diverse industries.  Guided by its 2013 Prosperity NOLA report, a comprehensive development plan designed to ensure the city's vitality for its tri-centennial in 2018 and beyond, NOLABA has been convening stakeholders and working with the Mayor’s Office and other actors to ensure that more than $6 billion in public investment in the development of a Biomedical District, a new airport terminal, and stormwater infrastructure is leveraged to develop job pipelines and small business procurement opportunities that build community wealth in city neighborhoods.
