East Tennessee well-represented in upcoming autoXLR8R

autoXLR8RThere’s a strong East Tennessee “flavor” to the technologies involved in this year’s autoXLR8R. The 13-week entrepreneurial boot camp, which is focused on bringing high-potential automotive technologies to market, launches next week (May 19) in Spring Hill.

Clodico, an Oak Ridge start-up that won its track in the recent “Charlotte Venture Challenge,” is one of the seven participants. In addition, two of the technologies in this year’s cohort were developed at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and a third comes from the University of Tennessee’s Research Foundation.

As if that’s not enough of an East Tennessee tie, Tech 20/20 has developed the curriculum that will be used by the autoXLR8R.
