LTN Program – CC Partners

Partnership

LaunchTN launched the Creative Communities (CC) Initiative this year, providing funds and programmatic support for organizations interested in implementing entrepreneurial programming in their community. These funds are targeted at organizations serving rural communities and underrepresented populations. LaunchTN will select a CC Partner in East, Middle and West Tennessee interested in hosting a Specialist this summer. Specialists would report to a leader from a CC Partner organization and be assigned a project related to that partner’s entrepreneurial programming. If you are interested in helping cultivate innovation in rural communities, this is the internship for you! Check back in December to find out which CC Partners were selected to participate.
