Each week in our weekly news round-up we feature two 2015 fellows of the Delta Entrepreneurship Network--one entrepreneur and one entrepreneurship support organization. These inaugural fellows of the DEN participated in New Orleans Entrepreneur Week in March, have received training and guidance in business development and entrepreneurship, and have helped to build out the Network.
