Sync Space, others produce map of Northeast TN entrepreneurial ecosystem

Map suggests resources to help with every stage of the start-up process.

The Sync Space Entrepreneur Center has unveiled the “Northeast Tennessee Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Map,” a visual roadmap showcasing the region’s Entrepreneurial Support Organizations, programs, and other vital opportunities for entrepreneurs and the small businesses community.

According to the announcement, the map was created through collaborative visioning sessions being held throughout the region with more than 35 organizations participating and more will be held. It is a visual representation that illustrates the interconnected elements and components that foster entrepreneurship, growth, and innovation within a specific region or community. The map provides an overview of the key organization, resources, support systems, and pathways that contribute to the growth and success of entrepreneurial activities.

Through this initiative, Sync Space aims to facilitate enhanced collaboration and efficiency within its regional network. This collaborative framework is intended to aid in the collective pursuit of our goals: supporting and empowering entrepreneurs, business owners, and visionaries throughout the region.

The map also suggests resources focused on four stages of growth, starting with imagining, and continuing through establishing, growing, and scaling.

Those in the region have been encouraged to explore the map at this link and contact the Sync Space team with recommendations of things to add or modify.
