Innovative Day

Entrepreneurs from across the Gulf Coast shared their business and marketing practices today at the Acadiana Center for the Arts.

The event, hosted by Innovate South, is a three-day conference filled with networking events, panel discussions, and keynote presentations.

Sessions ran all day Thursday and until 3:30 p.m. on Friday.

Destin Ortego, Director of Opportunity Machine, explained, "You have ideas that are currently here that are being shared. You have ideas out of our area being shared, which, in turn, because you are meshing those two ideas and create whole new ideas and ways to be innovative and create solutions for problems. Because that's the main thing at the end of the day, is that we want people to come together to create solutions for the problems."
