Chattanooga, it’s time to show the world what you got!
Join fellow entrepreneurs October 16-20th to kick off Startup Week Chattanooga, a multi-day celebration of Chattanooga’s entrepreneurial community. The week kicks off with Techstars Chris Heivly, one of the nation’s leading experts on turning startups into multimillion-dollar companies.
Heivly has been dubbed the “The Startup Whisperer” — he has personally directed over $75 million in investment capital and serves as a managing director of The Startup Factory, the largest seed investment firm in the Southeast. Under his leadership, the firm has made 35 investments in three years in emerging technology companies.
