100Knoxville seeks applicants for upcoming cohort

The applications opened on June 17, and will close on July 1.

On Monday, the Knoxville Entrepreneur Center (KEC) opened applications for the next cohort of the 100Knoxville program.  The intensive five-week program dives deeply into participating businesses to help create structure, systems, and strategies to grow their businesses.

What to expect

  • A pre-program workshop to help participants prepare to maximize their time;
  • Meet Your Mentor” session so participants and program mentors can meet and schedule their weekly mentor sessions;
  • Weekly tasks, videos, and education sent by the program facilitator;
  • A private Facebook group set up for each cohort to upload assignments, ask questions, and share information;
  • A feature story on all KEC social media platforms; and
  • A photoshoot for participants at the end of the session.

To receive the $10,000 grant after the program, cohort members must attend all sessions, meet with their mentor weekly, and turn in all assignments to the facilitator by the deadline given. Those activities are anticipated to take three hours every week.

Who should apply?

The selection committee looks at the following when determining their selections for each Grant Cohort Program:

  • Is the business located in the Greater Knoxville / Knox County area?
  • Is the business post-revenue? (Note: This program is for businesses that already have revenue/sales.)
  • Is the applicant a Black-owned business?
  • Did the applicant provide a detailed description of their business? Is there a website or social media presence that can be used to learn more?
