OUT TO LUNCH finds economist and Tulane finance professor Peter Ricchiuti conducting business New Orleans style: over lunch at Commander's Palace restaurant. Each week Peter invites guests from the New Orleans business renaissance to join him. The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and Inc magazine have all named New Orleans the best city in the USA to be an entrepreneur. Out to Lunch is the cafeteria of the new New Orleans entrepreneurial movement. You can also hear the show on WWNO 89.9FM.

New Orleans neighborhoods aren't like the rest of the country. Where else can you live on an expensive street that has potholes that can swallow a 5 year old. Where the streetlights are out but the traffic cameras work perfectly. And there's a street you’re never quite sure what the name is because it’s never had a sign.
Stepping into this rich tapestry of communities is Neighborlynx, a company that puts all the information about your neighborhood online in one convenient location.
Neighborlynx CEO Kelly Conatser is Peter Ricchiuti's guest today on this edition of Out to Lunch.
One thing we’re not big on in New Orleans is change. So this might not be the obvious place for a company called Commit Change. But Commit Change seems to be committed to being here. And changing the world.
Chief Marketing Officer Jason Nicosia joins Peter to explain his plan for global domination. And he’s pretty convincing.
In the entrepreneur segment of the show today, Peter introduces Peter Jacobson, co-founder of Wedocracy, the so-you're-getting-married app. Hear a longer conversation about Wedocracy with the two Peters, Jason, and Kelly here.
