Marcus Shaw, CEO of The Company Lab, presents at the Downtown Council of the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce’s breakfast meeting.

Mr. Shaw will discuss Chattanooga’s entrepreneurial scene, startup culture and how local businesses can engage with these companies, Sept. 5 at the Holiday Inn and Suites at 434 Chestnut St. at 7:30 a.m..

“Chattanooga has a touted entrepreneurial ecosystem, and downtown Chattanooga is fortunate to have many of those entrepreneurs and CO.LAB located in our footprint,” said Amy Donahue, Downtown Council president. “But we know there are many people wondering how their business can benefit or engage with these entrepreneurs, which this meeting is designed to address.” 

The Chattanooga Zoo, in addition to sponsoring this event, will bring an African serval to mingle with attendees and give away two free tickets to the annual Banana Ball fundraiser featuring well-known zookeeper Jack Hanna Saturday, Sept. 28.

Downtown Council meetings are open to the public, cost $15 to attend and payment is taken at the door.
