What are you made for?
Knoxville is made for Entrepreneurs…Like you. We’re proud of who we are, where we come from, and most of all: where we’re headed. Now, we want to know where you’re headed! Knoxville Entrepreneur Center is excited to launch the new “Made for Knoxville” campaign and website to elevate awareness of Knoxville’s diverse entrepreneurial ecosystem, and inspire action. The goal is to connect and empower the diverse entrepreneurial community in the Knoxville region — ranging from “solo-preneurs,” makers, growth stage tech companies, investors, and established institutions.
Calling all Entrepreneurs, Makers, Dreamers, and Doers: What’s your story?
This is an opportunity for small business owners, startups, and community leaders to be part of a multimedia campaign to celebrate the entrepreneurial ecosystem in our region.
