935 Gravier St. The New Orleans Busi­ness Alliance (NOLABA) is the offi­cial non-profit orga­ni­za­tion tasked with lead­ing eco­nomic devel­op­ment ini­tia­tives for the City of New Orleans. NOLABA is a public-private part­ner­ship between the City of New Orleans and pri­vate investors from the local community.

NOLABA is the result of a long-term effort by the busi­ness com­mu­nity to adapt national best prac­tices in eco­nomic devel­op­ment. Thanks to the strong lead­er­ship of Mayor Mitch Lan­drieu, NOLABA became a real­ity in August 2010. Our 17-member Board is com­posed of a cross sec­tion of New Orleans lead­ers, includ­ing the Mayor and a diverse group of busi­ness professionals.


To repo­si­tion New Orleans as the next great Amer­i­can city for busi­ness invest­ment, qual­ity of life, and eco­nomic opportunity.


To unite a diverse com­mu­nity of stake­hold­ers to cat­alyze job growth, cre­ate wealth, and build an equi­table and sus­tain­able eco­nomic future for the new New Orleans.
