TWENTY-one Tennesseans with business ideas and-or startups just-off the drawingboard signed-up for the latest PreFlight cohort program, now underway at Nashville Entrepreneur Center (EC).
On Jan. 27, the entire cohort began the 14-week program that is designed to help founders translate, morph and-or vet their money-making "ideas" into businesses.
Thus far, eight of the 21 PreFlight cohort members have chosen to divulge their concepts to the general public. Each business concept seems destined to change people, organizations and-or business processes.
