Launch Tennessee is focused on developing companies, creating jobs and growing Tennessee’s economy. Since Jan. 2013, Tennessee’s accelerator network has helped launch more than 350 businesses in our state. And all of that starts with your ideas.
If you have an innovative product you’d like to take to the global marketplace, LaunchTN can help. Through our Getting Ready To Write and Phase 0/00 programs, we teach you how to maximize your chances of getting federal funding through the SBIR/STTR programs, and we offer direction on everything from grant writing to business plans at minimal cost to you.
Because of LaunchTN’s unique position as a statewide partnership with both public and private interests, we connect inventors to the right investors for their product through events, our venture match program, and our SBIR/STTR workshops.
There are always great ideas coming out of our state research institutions, but often the people working on them are too busy filing patents or doing research to commercialize them. We can help you raise capital, create a market and minimize risk in order to make your idea into a viable business.
Commercializing a product can seem overwhelming, but LaunchTN has helped many Tennesseans do just that.
