Celebrate our startup community alongside Chattanooga’s leading entrepreneurs.
The evening will kick off on Floor Five of The Edney with pitches from select startups who have the most promise in the past year’s accelerators cohorts. These startups are pushing innovation in the areas of healthcare, 3D printing and more. Investors will have a chance to engage in one-on-one chats with the startups during several rounds of “Investor Speed-Dating” prior to public pitches. The event will also feature a CO.STARTERS Mini-Market, offering purchasable products from our CO.STARTERS graduates such as alcoholic milkshakes and local recipe subscription boxes.
After pitches, we will take the party to Warehouse Row. This portion of the evening will celebrate the official launch of CO.LAB’s Alumni Network*. So put on your dancing shoes and dress your best, because this is a big night.
Trust us when we say you will have plenty to do at this event. Interactive installations will be in place to showcase the growth and changes of our alumni network. Guests will also have an opportunity to share stories about their entrepreneurial experiences, which ultimately helps develop the overarching story of Chattanooga’s entrepreneurial community. Drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be provided during both parts of the evening as well.
*The Alumni Network is a dedicated effort to enrich our alumni community through continued communication, shared resources, more visibility for companies, and in-depth research of startups’ impact on our local economy.
