The annual Endeavor Summit returns on Sept. 15 to take over three major venues along Depot Avenue in the Old City. Planned by a committee of young professional volunteers, the one-day experience is produced by the Knoxville Chamber and empowers the region’s emerging leaders to evolve their personal brand and elevate the community through collective development opportunities.
The inaugural Paradigm Challenge business pitch competition selected three local firms to share $30,000 in startup investment. The program was the idea of the Knoxville Area Urban League’s (KAUL) CO.STARTERS program and supported by the Knoxville Chamber’s Propel mentor/protégé program. The program selected a winner in three categories: technology, healthcare, and retail.
