COMMUNITY EVENT SERIES

Our series are designed to meet a variety of our community members' needs. From casual happy hours intended to help create organic connections, to hosting Nashville’s business leaders to tell their story of success and failure, to small group discussions enabling like-minded entrepreneurs to open up about the obstacles they’re facing, we strive to create an environment where all can participate, learn and succeed. Our community series is free to active Nashville Entrepreneur Center members and $10 for non-members.

Please Note:  EC alumni programming series are excluded as they are only for EC accelerator alumni companies and members in the GROW membership tier.
