About Us

Propeller is a New Orleans-based nonprofit founded in 2009.

Who We Are

Propeller is a 501c3 nonprofit that grows and supports entrepreneurs to tackle social and environmental disparities. Our vision is an inclusive and thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem in New Orleans that responds to community needs and creates the conditions for an equitable future.

Our strategy is to build a critical mass of small businesses and nonprofits working to tackle disparities in community economic development, education, food, health, and water. These are areas we have identified as having significant inequities and proven market opportunities for local entrepreneurs to implement solutions.

What We Do

At the heart of Propeller’s work is our Impact Accelerator, a free program designed to help startup and growth stage entrepreneurs start, grow, and transform their businesses. Since our first accelerator program in 2011, Propeller has graduated 263+ entrepreneurs who collectively have generated over $162+ million in revenue and financing and created more than 485+ full- and part-time jobs for New Orleanians. Read more about their impact.

Our 10,000 square foot Incubator building offers a collaborative work and meeting space for small business owners, nonprofit leaders, and community members. More than 50 organizations and over 100 individuals are members. Our space is also available to rent for events, and can accommodate gatherings of all sizes.
