Basecamp Is Back In 2018

Tuesday, April 24, 2018

Basecamp, powered by EPB Fiber Optics, returns Tuesday, May 1. Basecamp is a free, monthly coworking day in Miller Plaza, 850 Market Street. Happening the first Tuesday of every month through October, Basecamp is designed to keep the Startup Week Chattanooga buzz going year round allowing entrepreneurs and downtown workers the opportunity to collide in Downtown Chattanooga’s Innovation District.

 

Anyone can join starting at 10 a.m. for networking; morning coffee and pastries supplied by Milk and Honey Coffee Bar in Community Pie; charging and work stations; games like ping pong; high speed Wi-Fi; a Talk Shop Tuesday lunch event with Co.Lab; and an Innovation Happy Hour at a different spot every month in the Innovation District.

All Basecamp events are free and open to the public.

 

“While you can work any week day in Miller Plaza, Basecamp, powered by EPB Fiber Optics, provides a special opportunity to meet and collaborate with others in our Innovation District and enjoy lots of extra perks” said Meagan Shinn, program director at River City Company. “With games, coffee, large tables, lots of charging stations and programs throughout the day, Basecamp is your free day of coworking in Miller Plaza.”

 

The Talk Shop Tuesday events bring the region’s leading entrepreneurs to Basecamp with insightful stories and practical business knowledge. May’s lunch speaker is Jennifer Skjellum, director of Blockchain & Crypto Innovation at ThreatAdvice, discussing “Beyond Cryptocurrency: A Quick Intro to the Blockchain".

 

New in 2018, Basecamp will feature a 2 O'Clock Pick Me Up Challenge. Overcoming the midday slump, this event will feature different Innovation District companies creative ideas to energize participants for the final stretch of his or her workday. In May, VaynerMedia and the Chattanooga Trivia League will host a Trivia Challenge. The winning trivia team will receive a gift card to Community Pie. At the end of the year, a vote will occur for the best 2 O'Clock Pick Me Up Challenge idea of 2018. The winning Innovation District company will receive a prize package including gift certificates from coffee shops, restaurants and more to share among team members.

 

Basecamp will coalesce in 2018 in the full week event in October as home base for Startup Week Chattanooga. For more information about Basecamp and other events happening in Miller Plaza, visit www.millerplazachattanooga.com
