Life Science Network






The Life Science Tennessee Network is beginning its third year, and continues to make a positive impact on the entrepreneurial community in the life science industry. 

In the spring of 2015, Life Science Tennessee partnered with Launch Tennessee to launch the mentor network program. Since then, it has successfully connected seasoned mentors with exciting new companies, all while leveraging the wealth of knowledge available in our state’s accelerators. In October 2016, Life Science Tennessee expanded its partnership with Launch to bring a greater variety of services to companies and mentors in the program.

Currently, the program pulls from the expertise of nearly 50 mentors. Modeled after San Diego’s CONNECT – Springboard program, mentors in the network guide participating companies through a process that helps fine-tune specific areas of a company’s investor pitch including overall presentation, finance, marketing, business strategy, intellectual property and other key aspects.

To graduate, companies must give a final presentation to an audience that includes investors. The goal of the program is to leverage the expertise of mentors in the Network to help these companies produce the best, most polished pitch possible. As we continue to grow, we also plan to bolster the life sciences industry in Tennessee by creating strong community ties between mentors in the network and between mentors and entrepreneurs.
