The TENN Master Accelerator Program

The TENN is a Master Accelerator program – following on the excellent work done through Tennessee’s nine regional entrepreneur centers. Our Master Accelerator is designed to extend the exceptional run-way of resources and support to our growing early-stage companies.

The program focuses on individualized curriculum, networking, business development and fundraising to ensure our companies reach the next level in their growth cycle. We tailor our support to each of the companies to focus scaling their KPI’s and gaining exposure across the country that would otherwise be impossible to garner as one company. Other program components include:
  • Curated business trips to San Francisco and New York to network with investors, entrepreneurs, and high-quality business development opportunities
  • Statewide roadshow visiting with some of Tennessee’s corporate partners, entrepreneurs and investors
  • Specialized learning days on a variety of business topics tailored to your company

We are excited to announce that UBS will be The TENN’s Title Sponsor for the 2015-2016 program. UBS is focused on elevating entrepreneurship across the country and their sponsorship will contribute significant support to the program.

 The TENN companies also receive the opportunity to have high-quality business development and investment meetings specifically curated for them. Some of these high-caliber companies and firms include:


2013 & 2014 Program Impact

$200K+ media value

95 media placements

>25 events with a total attendance of over 1200

Over $6 million+ in capital raised by TENN graduates
