Nearly 100 community organizers are joining local nonprofit The Company Lab in counting down he days to the beginning of Startup Week CHA 2021.
“I’m looking forward to the animation of the week,” event host and Chattanooga Tourism Co. Marketing Director Sean Phipps said. “My Tiktok session will be funny and informational but the Startup Week energy — which comes from attendees and community members — is a big part of the thrill.”
The free Startup Week CHA 2021 events will be Oct. 18-22 in downtown Chattanooga. More information is available here.

Startup Week kicks off with veteran, serial entrepreneur James Chapman, who spent years contributing to the Chattanooga entrepreneurial ecosystem before taking his talents to Detroit.
The kickoff also has a special guest — Stephanie Hays, who has organized Startup Weeks in the past, and now is on a great worldwide adventure, all on Airbnb’s dime. More on that here.
Eight entrepreneurs will pitch at Will This Float? More about that here.
