The Louisiana Startup prize will combine entrepreneurial education with the intensity of a competition.  The Startup prize's main goal is to develop better entrepreneurs, connect them with investors and help create an entrepreneurial culture in northwest Louisiana.

While there will be smaller cash prizes at the qualifying events, the entrepreneurs will ultimately be competing for the grand prize of cash and services equaling $50,000.

And it kicks off Wednesday, April 16th at 6 p.m., at Cohab in downtown Shreveport. The press conference will be followed by a kick-off party in the same location with Great Raft Brewery and Ki' Mexico. The event is open to everyone.

Sabrina Adsit talked with Stefanie Bryant about the terrific contest this morning on NBC 6 News Today.
