Launch Tennessee cancels next month’s “3686 Festival” due to COVID-19 developments

Launch Tennessee sent the following message yesterday:

“Due to recent COVID-19 developments and thoughtful deliberation on the part of LaunchTN staff, board and stakeholders, we have decided to postpone this year’s ‘3686 Festival,’ scheduled for September 21-23 in Nashville, Tennessee. Every ‘3686 Festival’ for the last eight years has sought to provide a high-quality experience for our guests and speakers. Considering this is an indoor event with an expected high attendance, we are unlikely to meet those expectations as our community’s health and safety is our biggest priority. Thank you for your continued support of the ‘3686 Festival.’ We look forward to connecting again in person in 2022 and we encourage you to engage with our many LaunchTN programs in the meantime. You can find details about our program and partners and so much more on our website Until then, we appreciate your continued support of our vision to make Tennessee the most startup-friendly state in the nation.’
