Tennessee has a strong tradition of entrepreneurship. From HCA to FedEx to Unum, Tennessee startups have a history of solving problems, creating jobs and strengthening the state economy.
Launch Tennessee was created to continue and expand upon that tradition. Our mission is to make Tennessee the No. 1 place in the Southeast to start and grow a business, and that begins with entrepreneurs.
A Statewide Network for Startups
As Tennessee’s only statewide collaborative startup network, LaunchTN is positioned to provide all the resources entrepreneurs, small-business owners, inventors and investors need. From regional accelerators to capital assistance, LaunchTN guides entrepreneurs from idea to execution and on to continued success.
LaunchTN has built a network of small-business accelerators around the state. Each targets a group of specific industries, and all offer access to LaunchTN’s growing network of investors and mentors.
Learn more about successful entrepreneurship by asking questions, reading blogs and articles and exploring the resources that our team uses on a daily basis.
Help us build LaunchTN’s network by sharing your expertise or attending our events.
In 2013, LaunchTN took the “best of the best” when it tapped 10 companies to participate in its first master-accelerator program.
