Rediscover and Reimagine

May 1-6, 2023

What to Expect

Now in its 12th year, Baton Rouge Entrepreneurship Week (BREW) is back with an all-new festival-like experience to celebrate the spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation in Baton Rouge. Not to be confused with a conference, BREW is a multi-day, multi-venue experience for entrepreneurs, inventors, investors, techies, creatives, foodies, and anyone with an interest in shaping our community. This years event features a special keynote from Gayle Benson, owner of the New Orleans Saints & Pelicans.

Festivities kickoff on Monday, May 1 with a family-friendly block party in Town Square and culminates with a live pitch competition with an investment prize totaling $100,000.

The High-Stakes Pitch Competition is back to give our state’s most promising startups a chance at an investment prize to invigorate and propel their businesses to success as we all look toward the future of entrepreneurship in Louisiana.


Rediscover & Reimagine is a call to action to find new ways of using our existing resources, to open our eyes to the world of play, and to imagine what the future could hold if we prioritize creativity and imagination.

Throughout the week, attendees will explore how entrepreneurship is an exciting and rewarding adventure.


Join us May 1-6, as we take over Downtown Baton Rouge for a week-long event that brings together hundreds of entrepreneurs and business professionals to develop meaningful connections and explore new paths to build what’s next.
