About this event
Startup Day will be hosted at the Mill in Mine in Downtown Knoxville, Tennessee, on Tuesday, October 5, 2021.
Startup Day is an annual “Shark-Tank”-style pitch competition for a chance to win up to $10,000 in cash prizes. Six of Knoxville’s most investable startups will pitch their businesses in front of a panel of expert judges. In addition to the opportunity to spotlight their startup for investors, entrepreneurs will compete for a “crowd favorite” cash prize, presented by Truist.
The event will also feature the Impact Award, presented by Verizon, to a Knoxville entrepreneur who has gained the most momentum over the past few years.
Join us for another great event of celebrating Knoxville’s robust entrepreneurial ecosystem!
