Bunker Brews Presents: Starting A Small Business in Tennessee

Join Bunker Labs Knoxville for a great discussion on starting a successful small business in Tennessee.

Guest speaker, J.D. Cressman, runs the Tennessee Office of Small Business Advocate, created by the TN General Assembly to be a one-stop-shop for small business owners. The Office of Small Business Advocate answers questions and provides information to Tennessee residents who are starting or own a small business. The office acts as a point of contact between small business owners and the thirty state government agencies that regulate business in Tennessee, and assists small business owners in gathering the information that they need in order to start or run their business.

Discover like-minded veterans and entrepreneurs across the community as we move these connections and ideas forward. Free and open to all!
