Sync Space Entrepreneur Center issues “Impact Report”

The Sync Space Entrepreneur Center has issued what it describes as its “Impact Report” for 2021-22, documenting the many ways and organizations with which the Kingsport-based organization has served the Appalachian Highlands region of Northeast Tennessee.

“We focus on open dialogue and alignment of vision where our local, regional, and state partners’ goals can be best achieved, as we create a new launchpad for our entrepreneurs and innovators,” the introduction states. “The outcome is always a result of collaboration and a focus on the greater impact. The ecosystem is the enabler for an entrepreneur’s success. At its most effective, the ecosystem provides the right tools and resources at the right time to amplify the founder’s journey and product, while ceding importance along the way.”

The 26-page document highlights start-ups and program collaborators.

  • Sync Space, one of the Launch Tennessee network partners, served 82 companies through seven programs. Forty-five percent were female-led companies, and 24 percent of all start-ups served were founded by minorities.
  • A total of 41 mentors held 264 one-on-one sessions with entrepreneurs.
  • Clients that were spotlighted include: (1) Hope to Walk which is developing low-cost prosthetic legs; (2) rpl. that has developed a student-mentorship connection app; (3) Blue Sky Cyber which will launch a pilot of its cybersecurity system soon; and (4) IncrediMed, a healthcare data architecture company that specializes in the delivery of a physician-designed mobile app that digitally represents a physical care plan for a patient through the use of their mobile phone.
