The Idea Village and the Greater New Orleans Foundation have teamed up to create the 2011 Water Venture Development Challenge. One of the greatest challenges we face in Southeastern Louisiana stems from water-related issues. Together, they are seeking out new entrepreneurs to help develop better water management solutions. According to Tim Williamson, Co-Founder and CEO of the Idea Village, "The goal of Water Challenge is to ignite a community to support entrepreneurs developing innovative solutions to living with water. Together with Greater New Orleans Foundation, we are looking to be a catalyst to encourage our community to create lasting, scalable solutions by turning one of the region's greatest threats into one of our greatest assets.
