The EC partners with Google for Entrepreneurs as one of nine Tech Hubs in North America to help our local Nashville startup community thrive. Tech Hubs provide a venue for developers and the wider tech community to engage directly with companies and training partners like Google. Google for Entrepreneurs enables Tech Hubs by providing them with technical content, business tools, and infrastructure upgrades to support increasing demand from developers and startups.



The Nashville Entrepreneur Center (EC) fosters innovation and entrepreneurship by turning ideas into investable businesses. As a non-profit 501c(3) organization, the EC is funded through sponsorships, partnerships, donations and grants and relies on support from leading corporations, successful entrepreneurs and others with a vested interest in the EC’s success.



The EC provides resources to help any entrepreneur with an idea, from starting a new business to scaling and expanding an existing business. In addition to coworking space and events, EC members have access to the EC’s comprehensive Mentor Program, a network of over 500 mentors from various industries and professions. The EC’s mentors have been carefully selected and trained to coach entrepreneurs on their journeys to creating and building their businesses.

The EC’s predominant role is facilitating Accelerator Programs for high-growth, high-potential startups under the verticals of Health Care, Digital Media and Entertainment, Technology and Social Enterprise.



The EC became the front door for entrepreneurs aspiring to create companies in Nashville with the opening of its flagship facility at 105 Broadway in August of 2010. In June of 2013, the EC moved to its current location in one of the many Trolley Barns on Rolling Mill Hill.
Originally a vision of the Partnership 2010 initiatives of the Nashville Chamber of Commerce, the EC began in 2007 with the mission of raising the quality of resources available to Nashville’s entrepreneurial and small business communities. The EC represents a partnership of local and state government support, private interests and the Nashville business community at-large.
