Lindsey Cox’s official title at Launch Tennessee is Director of Operations and Government Affairs, a description that does not adequately cover her many roles that have touched entrepreneurs including coordinating the annual “36|86 Entrepreneurship Festival.”
A dual graduate of Tennessee Tech University, Cox joined the organization six years ago as a Finance, Accounting and Compliance Manager. Since then, her role has expanded considerably because of her engaging personality and drive. Cox played a key role along with Life Science Tennessee and others is securing the original funding for the State of Tennessee’s “SBIR and STTR Matching Program.”
Later this month, Cox will relocate to Washington, DC to lead the policy work in the Office of Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the U. S. Economic Development Administration. She will be missed.
