Over the last few years, New Orleans has been in a constant state of rebuilding. Along with the volunteers and contractors who have worked to rebuild the historic city, came a crop of talented, smart entrepreneurs looking to build companies, too.

In the video below, Launch Pad cofounder Chris Schultz talks about how New Orleans’ tech ecosystem has blossomed in the four years since the coworking space and accelerator first launched in 2009.

Expanding upon his interest for creating a positive working atmosphere, Chris is currently launching Niko Niko, a mood analytics platform that helps coworkers keep track of happiness in the workplace.

Chris took part in our SXSW Startup Celebration sponsored by CEA and .CO. Here’s the video.
