DescriptionIn March 2011 Zachary Kupperman a New Orleans attorney with an interest in tech startups attended New Orleans Entrepreneur Week an annual convention of business leaders and entrepreneurs. For Kupperman co-founder of websites such as PolicyPitch.com a site where users can submit public policy ideas and track state and local legislation the convention was an acknowledgment of the strength of the Crescent City’s business scene and a demonstration that those involved had a great deal to talk about.
