LaunchTN will build Mentor Networks 2.0, an expanded and enhanced statewide mentoring program to create a thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem throughout Tennessee. Building on proven strategies and deepening already fruitful partnerships with educational and research institutions and industry leaders, Mentor Networks 2.0 will guide startups via customized curricula and programming focusing on the Life Science, Energy, Automotive and Agriculture sectors -- particularly in our underserved rural regions. The result will be a more powerful statewide entrepreneurial economic engine, a more equitable distribution of Tennessee's abundant educational and industrial resources, a robust pool of talent, and more jobs for Tennesseans.
