You are invited to the Resilient New Orleans Innovation Challenge Showcase sponsored by Elemental Excelerator in New Orleans, LA on Tuesday, June 25. The one-day event will highlight New Orleans' public sector investment into sustainable housing and infrastructure as designed in the Resilience New Orleans Finance Plan. Climate technology companies competing to have their products deployed in public sector projects will be featured throughout the day. With help from Elemental Excelerator, we have identified over 34 climate technology companies across the world through our Resilient New Orleans Innovation Challenge. Between three to six of these climate technology companies will be selected to participate in a pilot homebuilding project sponsored by Finance New Orleans and other partners.

The Resilient New Orleans Innovation Challenge Showcase is intended to engage Finance New Orleans' network of stakeholders, which includes city agencies, community organizations, developers, realtors, bond investors, commercial banks, foundations, green finance authorities, large corporations, climate technology companies and venture capital investors. Each of these groups are critical to Finance New Orleans reaching its goal of $1 billion of sustainable community investment in New Orleans by 2035. The day will be filled with innovative ideas and conversations around solutions to help us evolve as a community. We want a physically transformed New Orleans with equitable economic opportunities for all.
