Here’s What BioTN is About

It’s undeniable: Tennessee’s science community is on the rise. Companies are building here. Life-changing products are emerging from some of the most exciting science companies in the country. Investments are arriving almost daily. And the world is taking notice.

But we’re only getting started. A generation of young scientists needs to be cultivated. Our region’s workforce needs to be educated, enabled, and activated. The next round of science entrepreneurs needs to be fostered, fed, and funded. That’s what we do.

Here’s What We’re Up To Next

We’re building Nashville’s most successful biotech-fueled science incubator ever: Cofactory.

Science entrepreneurs have very specific needs, and we’re just the people to meet them. Cofactory takes the last decade of lessons that Nashville has learned about building business, and applies them to Health Information Technology, biotech, and other science-based business sectors. Cofactory will foster big biobusiness by enabling the sci-tech community, providing streamlined access to industry-specific service providers, and giving Nashville’s best science business hustlers a shortcut to commercial success.
