LaunchTN Investment Tracking Methodology

LaunchTN data tracks all kinds of fundraising activity by Tennessee-based startups (companies still in an early, if accelerated stage of growth). There is no age limit. Additional notes regarding our tracking methodology:

  1. If a company receives INCITE Co-Investment or TNInvestco funds, it is automatically included given the nature of the program.
  2. No restrictions were put on Stage or Series. Every effort was made to ensure PE deals were not highlighted. In cases where raises were a VC/PE combo, they were included if media coverage handled the story similarly to other TN companies.
  3. No real estate, oil and gas, or banking companies were included.
  4. Given the range of types of startups that our accelerator network engages with, no restrictions were placed that the company had to be technologically enabled.
