  • Finding and unlocking our region’s assets for supporting tech and innovation-based startups
  • Where to incubate and accelerate your tech or innovation based startup
  • How to get in front of the right investors

Each Founders and Funders TNT will feature a:

  • pre-game networking reception with open bar and food
  • overview on a startup specific topic
  • moderated fireside chat with a startup founder paired with one of their startup investors.

Those who should attend are entrepreneurs or investors who:

  • have a great idea for a company but not sure how to get started
  • are curious about launch their own startup and what resources are available to jumpstart them
  • are struggling with a startup venture and need support
  • are investors who want to connect with entrepreneurs and fellow funders and share insights

This TNT series aims to:

  • connect the sometimes elusive dots in our #CvilleTech startup ecosystem
  • bridge gaps in the understanding of what assets are available 
  • provide meaningful connections and a face-to-face networking platform
  • spark insights
  • reduce the friction for entrepreneurs and investors alike
