Fall Program – September 12th through November 14th, 2022

Participants of the CO.STARTERS program work with a small and supportive group of like-minded people who are all trying to start their own businesses. Working together, participants identify their assumptions about why and how their respective businesses will succeed and talk with customers to validate their ideas. The process enables the startup to rapidly uncover issues in their proposed businesses, find practical solutions quickly, and leave the program with a deeper understanding of how to launch a successful business.

In addition to incredible business tools and insight, the participants will pitch their product to receive several benefit packages, including cash prizes and a one-year membership to the Chamber of Commerce.

“We have found CO.STARTERS to be a great starting point for new businesses’” said Chamber President Bob Cantler. “We feel this program helps equip our community’s small businesses with everything they need to start and thrive. The curriculum looks at who your customer is, how to reach them, financial modeling, and growth plans. “

CO.STARTERS came out of The Company Lab, a Chattanooga, Tennessee organization that offers programs and events to support local startups and innovators in Chattanooga and the surrounding region. The program takes the lessons learned from working with thousands of local, creative entrepreneurs and combines that knowledge with the lean business modeling methods used by high-growth startups.
