Event description

Description

This summer, join the Southeast’s premier gathering of founders, investors and ecosystem builders for 30+ growth-oriented panels, a new twist on founder:VC networking and the very best of Music City!


Grab a seat for workshops and fireside chats at our downtown venues like BB King’s, Wildhorse Saloon and Acme Feed & Seed.


Kick off your heels at the Women's Lounge, powered by WeWork and Pathway Lending. Meet other female business leaders and catch AMAs with elite speakers like Arlan Hamilton.


Brush elbows with serial entrepreneurs, top VCs and startup thought leaders at nightly rooftop parties.


And when the last panel wraps, join us for opening night of Live on the Green, Nashville’s free outdoor music festival.


Only at 36|86, get insider tips and advice from tech titans and serial founders who have been in your shoes, and network with key VCs and business connections that will help you grow.

The best part? For the first time ever, we’re using a proven tool to match entrepreneurs with investors for more productive networking at 36|86.


The VIRAL (Venture Investment-Readiness and Awareness Levels) Pathway is a framework developed by our friends at Village Capital, a Washington, D.C.-based VC, to help entrepreneurs and investors use the same language to find common ground and mutual opportunity. Blocks of time will be scheduled throughout 36|86 for investor:entrepreneur networking at your assessed VIRAL level.


This August, make it happen. Network smarter and take your business to the next level at 36|86 Entrepreneurship Festival.
