EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS

The Nashville Entrepreneur Center's educational programs provide resources for entrepreneurs with businesses at create, launch and growth stages of their ventures.  Our programs connect entrepreneurs to the critical curriculum, relationships and capital that provide the foundation to turn an
idea stage startup into a revenue generating, growth-driven company.

 
 

Create level programs introduce newcomers to entrepreneurial methodology and allow current entrepreneurs to build a foundation for new ideas.  Launch programs include multiple 14-week accelerators supporting music tech, healthcare, digital media, publishing innovations, social enterprise and more.  We are able to provide unique programming to help foster innovation for each of these economy driving industries.  Growth level programs provide the follow-on support for accelerator graduates and education for existing startups to reach new revenue heights.
