Over the last couple of years, we have seen the Chattanooga region begin to embrace the idea of entrepreneurship. Indeed, entrepreneurs are actually being heralded by local media…and they should! Where is the next generation of wealth coming from? Who will create the jobs of the future? Entrepreneurs.

Recently, the State of Tennessee has taken incredible strides to move entrepreneurial activity up a few notches. The launch of programs like TN Investco have startup founders around the South buzzing about being a part of the entrepreneurial culture that is beginning to grow statewide.

And now, to further show the commitment of the State to entrepreneurs, Tennessee is launching the Regional Entrepreneurial Accelerator Program. This program will designate a regional accelerator in each of the state’s nine regions.

With access to entrepreneurial resources across the state, Tennessee is sure to make headway in attracting top entrepreneurial talent from around the US. It’s going to be a fun ride!
