The TENN Master Accelerator Program

After a successful 2013 program, Launch Tennessee is bringing back The TENN Master Accelerator Program. For the 2014 program, 10 startups will be selected that have successfully graduated from their accelerator cohorts between September 1, 2013 and August 31, 2014.

We are excited to announce that UBS will be The TENN’s Title Sponsor for the 2014-2015 program. UBS is focused on elevating entrepreneurship across the country and their sponsorship will contribute significant support to the program.

The TENN aims to highlight the best of Tennessee’s accelerator network, which includes some of the Southeast’s top programs based on capital raised by companies as well as the ONLY medical device, automotive and 3D printing programs in the country, plus programs focused on female founders, agriculture and logistics.
