Tap into the Sunbelt's most innovative virtual space for founders

Learn from peer founders, funders and experts so you can have knowledge you need to make great decisions about your startup.

It’s free!

600+ Startupnash community members

Creating new things is for the brave.

And charging for things you’ve created is downright insane. Or is it? In StartupNash, we give each other space to find out. We’re a group of founders, funders, builders, sellers, tryers, failers, and get-back-up-and-try-again-ers. We’re beginners, and we’re experts, live-and-learners, we’re the midnight oil burners. Startup life is lonely, so why not make it fun? Get yourself a dream team when you’re a team of one. Here’s a scary question. What if we opened up our rolodex and shared our best contacts? Our gift is context. We’re not Nashville nice, we’re kind and honest. Stand on our shoulders, closer to the SUN. We walked so you could run! So what are you waiting for?

Let’s move together

Are you a founder resource?


You have the power to partner with us to drive awareness to your founder resources. Your organization can be a part of this story, especially if you have something great to offer founders and funders in our region. We also love exposing members to resources beyond Nashville that can help them break out of our local and regional scene.


Do you want us to meet your marketing team each month to drive awareness to your founder resources? Let StartupNash help you talk to the Sunbelt’s founder audience.
