ALUMNI PROGRAMMING

Building a company doesn't stop at the end of a structured program such as PreFlight or an accelerator like Project Music.
At the Nashville Entrepreneur Center we are dedicated to helping our alumni companies succeed over the long run by supplying continuing
mentorship, programming, peer networking opportunities and more. 

FEATURES

--> PROGRAMMING

Alumni specific programming (Founders Therapy, Lunch&Learn and Resources) is available to all Grow level memberships - whether graduates of EC-related accelerator programming or otherwise.  For 2016, all accelerator graduates (Project Music, 1440, Jumpstart Foundry, Social Enterprise Alliance, Healthbox and Other EC early accelerators) will be able to participate in Alumni Programming for free. Please note this does not include PreFlight.  For those accelerator alumni who have active memberships, your membership will be upgraded to Grow status for the year, for free.  For other accelerator alumni companies who are not currently members of the EC, you will be allowed to join for free for the year of 2016.

#FAIL is a program series for our community of entrepreneurs and leaders who have discovered how to thrive after experiencing a failure. In an effort to embrace these hard times, the EC will invite a variety of Nashville’s most successful entrepreneurs to start the #FAIL conversation, sharing lessons from failure that have led to successes. The program begins with audience Q&A followed by small break-out discussions regarding the topics of growth and failure. #FAIL is an onsite EC program occurring every other month.
