LAUNCH TENNESSEE is providing microgrants of $4K or $6K each for approximately 10 Tennessee-based early-stage companies that are currently applying or will soon apply for an SBIR/STTR Phase I, Phase II or Fast-Track award. The grants are designed expressly to support procurement of high-caliber grant-writing assistance. Very clear detailed instructions and descriptions of expectations are provided here. LTN Director Jill Van Beke said today some Tennessee companies have already signalled their intent to pursue grants during State FY17, which ends June 30, 2017. This latest commercialization initiative differs from earlier LTN programs in several ways, including the fact that it enables grantseekers to leverage the state's proliferating mentor networks. LaunchTN is officially registered as Tennessee Technology Development Corporation (TTDC).

Mindcare Solutions Group has raised more than $19MM against its latest target for the telemedicine player based in Franklin, based on its Form D today, which, again, carries many familiar names. See our 12/15 note with more detail on the capital push here. VNC
