36|86 is for the innovator.

It’s for the startup ready to take its product to market. It’s for the VC scouting for impactful technology to back. It’s for the local leader determined to attract talent and bolster business in her community. It’s for the unconventional founder, the top executive, and the hard-working student. But it’s not just for who you are or where you are today. It’s for who you want to become tomorrow. And it’s all happening in Tennessee, one of the most startup-friendly states in the nation.
