Innovation Delegation

An Assembly of the Best and Brightest


What's This all About?

The Innovation Delegation is a diverse collection of highly skilled, innovative individuals assembled from various industries across the country to improve Chattanooga’s startup infrastructure. Throughout their week-long sponsored visit, the delegates will meet and ideate with a wide-range of startups, venture incubators, accelerators, community leaders, and investors. At the end of the week, delegates will present their findings and ideas to the startup community, industry experts, and the city at an event that puts innovation at center stage.

We're committed to building a world-class city—help us find the best to join us.

The Innovation Delegation was specifically designed to make Chattanooga a better city for startups. We’re on the hunt for the best and brightest to lend their expertise and help work through problems from a new perspective. We focus on three main problem areas: technology, talent, and capital. 

It’s a think-tank and a fellowship smashed together and shot out of a cannon after being injected with a super-serum—let’s find out what we can do together.

The Innovation Delegation offers up a chance to get hands on experience with the nation's most advanced smart grid, including gigabit speeds that feed directly into residential homes all across the city. We’re looking for bright minds to bring a keen eye to our startup and technology ecosystem.

Think of it like a sandbox—there’s already a castle or two set up, but the most fun and exciting projects haven’t been built yet and might require knocking some stuff down.

After a week of show, it’s your time to tell. At the end of the delegation’s scheduled time in Chattanooga, you will get a chance to tell the community, stakeholders, and national experts what you found and a few things you would change. We’re stoked to spotlight hardcore innovators and great ideas on a huge stage.

Basically, we’re taking a TED Talk and splicing it with George Washington’s Farewell Address and then opening it up to an entire community—we think that’s pretty cool.
