Redmann is hoping the program will encourage graduates interested in working for or starting their own technology firms to do so and to do so in New Orleans.

“We’re really excited about what this can do for New Orleans and the technology community in New Orleans,” Redmann said. “So many students coming out of the technology programs in Louisiana feeling like they have to leave the state to find jobs. We’re hoping to change the mindset.”
