Another celebration of innovation coming to Nashville this spring

LaunchTN will host its second annual "Innovation Week" in Nashville this March.

Launch Tennessee (LaunchTN) has announced that its second annual “Innovation Week” is slated for March 27-31 in Nashville. 

The week, which showcases the state’s entrepreneurship successes, grew out of the organization’s annual effort to increase the visibility of start-ups and innovation in the Volunteer State. 

“Tennessee is unique because we have a really strong, state-wide entrepreneurial community,” said Lindsey Cox, LaunchTN Chief Executive Officer. “Innovation Week is a great time to have everyone involved in that community together. The value of getting all these great minds in one place can’t really be overstated.”  

The free event will:

  • Showcase the state’s innovators and innovation assets;
  • Include advocacy for Tennessee’s entrepreneurial ecosystem; and
  • Connect lawmakers, start-up founders, investors, mentors and other leaders in the entrepreneurial space.

The week will include some invitation-only events for LaunchTN’s Network Partners, while other events are open to the public. Registration information is forthcoming. 

During the “Innovators Summit” on March 30, there will be lab tours that showcase the work scientists do in the hopes of commercializing it, as well as educational sessions and networking opportunities. On the final day (March 31), there will be popup events across the state at regional entrepreneur centers.

Last year’s event drew more than 700 people to Nashville.
