The First Annual Southeast Entrepreneurship Conference hosted in Chattanooga, TN was a success! Previously, the conference has been hosted in Tampa, FL.

Many Chattanooga business professionals participated as conference speakers and represented the following local companies: TORCH, Footprint Foundation, Causeway, LAUNCH Chattanooga, Stone Bridge Asset Management, The Jump Fund, the Chattanooga Renaissance Fund, Spartan Ventures, Miller & Martin PLLC, Variable, Chattem, CoStarters, Bellhops, and more!
