What is LaunchTN’s 3686 FESTIVAL?
Tennessee is one of the few states with a statewide network of organizations collaborating directly with investors, entrepreneurs, and each other to enhance startup growth in 7 regions across the state. As part of Launch Tennessee’s mission to build Tennessee into the most startup friendly state in the nation, we host 3686 to serve as a meeting ground for best-in-class representatives of innovation, investment, and institutional businesses from Tennessee and across the country to create this community with us. Named for the geographic coordinates of Nashville, 3686 is a unique conference experience filled with opportunities to connect with your next collaborator, catch live shows in Music City, and prepare your business for scale and growth with a suite of tactical speaker content, investor connections, networking and interactive sessions.
