    Why New Orleans? Three reasons -
    1. vibrant entrepreneurial community and business incubators - Idea Village, 4.0 Schools, Launch Pad Ignition (TechStars affiliate)
    2. large market of innovative charter schools eager to try to new systems and tools - 80% of kids in NOLA attend charters and this number is growing
    3. tax credits - statewide program provides 25-35% tax credit for digital media and R&D for tech companies
