Feetz takes top honors in this year’s “The TENN” finale

The TENN 2014Feetz, the Chattanooga-based graduate of the “GIGTANK” that bills itself as the “digital cobbler,” won “The Traction Award” at last night’s finale for Launch Tennessee’s “The TENN” master accelerator program.

It was the second year in a row that an East Tennessee start-up took the top prize at the end of the nearly six-month program. In 2014, Knoxville-based Vendor Registry placed first and Suirvature, another Knoxville start-up, came in third..

We have posted several articles on Feetz, including this profile on Co-Founder Lucy Beard and this more recent article about the start-up’s successful securing of $1.25 million through a seed funding round led by Khosla Ventures.

We’ll have more coverage from “The TENN” finale on Monday.
