Startup Day 2020

Startup Day will be presented virtually using Knoxville based technology platform, Lunchpool.

Startup Day is an annual “Shark-Tank”-style pitch competition for a chance to win up to $10,000 in cash prizes. Six of Knoxville’s most investable startups will pitch their businesses in front of a panel of expert judges. In addition to the opportunity to spotlight their startup for investors, entrepreneurs will compete for a “crowd favorite” cash prize presented by BB&T and SunTrust Bank, now Truist.

Added to the Startup Day program this year is a special award and recognition of an inventor who has made a positive impact in the fight against COVID-19, presented by Verizon.

Join us for another great event of celebrating Knoxville’s robust entrepreneurial ecosystem!
