Nashville — Pinnacle Financial Partners and LaunchTN are partnering on a series of meetups, called Capital Conversations, with two remaining events to take place in 2023.
After successful events in Memphis and Knoxville, Capital Conversations will travel to Chattanooga on Nov. 9.
“Pinnacle remains diligent in enhancing how the firm serves our community,” said Kevin Roddey, Financial Advisor for Pinnacle Financial Partners. “Pinnacle would not be where we are now without the relationships we’ve built, especially our partnership with Launch Tennessee to support their invaluable efforts to make a significant positive impact on the community and provide financial services to the companies served by Launch Tennessee and its partners. Capital Conversations highlight our complementary partnership and the ways we hope to continue to serve the entrepreneurs of Tennessee.”
The third event in the series of four will take place at Society of Work, who is on board as a venue sponsor for the Chattanooga event, along with LaunchTN’s Network Partner The Company Lab, Nov. 9 from 5-7 p.m. (EST).
The events are opportunities for entrepreneurs, startup companies, investors, and others in the state’s entrepreneurial community to network and connect.
The Capital Conversation event in Chattanooga will feature members of LaunchTN’s Capital team and financial sector experts from Pinnacle Financial Partners. The event will be kicked off by a representative from LaunchTN’s Regional Entrepreneur Center Network Partner: The Company Lab.
The Launch Tennessee team will be on hand to discuss InvestTN, a new $70-million fund for investments in startups and venture funds throughout the state. Pinnacle Financial Partners will offer up expert advice on financial services and support specific to startups.
“After successful events in both Memphis and Knoxville, we are excited to continue this partnership with Pinnacle by holding the penultimate event in the series of four in Chattanooga. Launch Tennessee’s partnership with Pinnacle is allowing us to enhance our ability as an organization to offer insight and valuable information to startups throughout the state,” LaunchTN Development Director Emily Masters said.
