We’re focusing on six key Industry Clusters
Primed for expansion in these key clusters, New Orleans community and industry leaders are dedicated to advancing the growth of these industries as the city enhances its standing as a corporate and entrepreneurial hub with a strong business climate.
A cluster-based approach is derived from national best-practice research in economic development strategies. Heightened focus on targeted clusters requires more continuous innovation and thus increases a region’s sustainable competitive advantage.
Implementing a cluster-based approach is a tool for engaging industries in collective problem solving, and builds the framework to address the common needs of existing businesses within the cluster. ProsperityNOLA’s focus on industry clusters aims to make New Orleans a more attractive place for new businesses in these industries to thrive, while retaining and growing existing firms.
