In 2014, we launched CO.STARTERS at The Skillery, a quarterly, nine-week business development program focused on doing — during every session, we’re working on students’ businesses and ideas directly, shaping, fine-tuning and focusing.
Come this cohort’s Pitch Night — our commencement ceremony, of sorts, during which CO.STARTERS grads present their businesses to an audience of supporters — we’ll have worked alongside more than 50 local entrepreneurs, who’ve created thriving Nashville food tours, a buzzing West Nashville home goods shop, an impeccably cool event decor business and lots more.
We try not to toot The Skillery horn too hard, but we’re truly proud of and inspired by our crew of CO.STARTERS at The Skillery grads, and humbled that they’ve allowed us to be a part of their stories.
If you’re thinking about launching a business, or recently brought one to life, we’d love to help you on the path toward making a living doing what you love.
