The Southern Series aims to find some of the most promising early stage companies throughout the region for 36|86. Launch Tennessee, in conjunction with local partners, will conduct a 36|86 mini-series in some of the leading entrepreneurial hubs in the southeast.

Each event provides an opportunity for regional startup celebration and to identify the very best entrepreneurs located throughout the Southeast. Ten startups will be selected to pitch at each stop on The Southern Series, where winners will advance to LaunchTN’s 36|86 conference in June for the opportunity to pitch for prizes and travel stipends, including $50,000 to the winner.  All of The Southern Series winners selected to attend 36|86 will receive a travel and lodging stipend as well as a free conference pass!

The Southern Series Programming Structure:

– Single/half day events to bring together top regional startups, investors, media and supporters
– Up to 10 companies selected to present at each regional event
– Up to 4 winners from each region announced to attend 36|86 in June
– Following the pitch event, a networking reception will be held
