Start Up:
BUsiness Bootcamp

Start Up: Business Bootcamp is a 4 week program that meets twice a week and equips aspiring entrepreneurs with insights, relationships and tools needed to turn their business ideas into reality. 

Who is Start Up for?

You! Have an idea that’s ready to become a reality, but you don’t know how to start a business. Maybe you’ve already started your business and are searching for clarity in marketing and a fuller understanding of running a successful business this program is for you.  The one essential element is that you have a concept that you are ready and willing to share and grow in a collaborative environment

How does the program work?

Start Up is led by a facilitator who’s an experienced entrepreneur. The facilitator will introduce you to action-driven concepts you can apply to your business or project. Luke Ramey, owner of Skip The Line & The Pod Kitchen,  lifelong entrepreneur and Upper Cumberland community member. This isn’t a lecture, but a creative & interactive program that will help you fine-tune your business.

Why Start Up?

We love the collaborative nature of the program. You’ll be learning from each other and building a network that will help your ideas grow.  This program is approachable and also challenges you to identify and test your business assumptions. Which helps you launch your business, not just theorize how things will play out.


Applications are open for Fall 2024 session. We ask for businesses to apply because we want to fill the program with participants that are at a place in their business that our team can most help.
