It looks as though the Knoxville Overground is pushing forward and looking to create a downtown workspace along with their Sequoyah Hills office. Below is the latest post from Knoxviews.com.
35 Market Square could be a micro-enterprise development center modeled off of one in San Francisco
In the midst of our recession, the non-profit organization Knoxville Overground continues to push forward with its grassroots campaign to build resources for triple-bottom line entrepreneurs and self-employed professionals in the greater Knoxville area with the message “passion is recession-proof.”
Tomorrow on Wednesday March 25th at 7pm, Knoxville Overground will host a social mixer at 35 Market Square as well as provide tours of the 5,000 sq. ft. facility it hopes to convert into a micro-enterprise development center within the next few months.
Their proposal, modeled off of the top-ranked San Francisco Renaissance Center, entails using the space as a resource where startups in a variety of industries (specifically companies positioned to bring in the majority of their revenue from outside Tennessee) can grow around a community of other startups, self-employed professionals, and organization representatives that specifically serve the startup community.
The last social event hosted by Knoxville Overground was the grand opening of its entrepreneur community center and coworking workspace last month (free for members to use who qualify and pay $49/year) at 1204 Kenesaw in Sequoyah Hills. The event attracted over 101 guests from the startup community, investment firms, and the economic development sector.
