Startup Day, an annual pitch competition and celebration of Knoxville’s thriving entrepreneurial community, is back and better than ever! Anyone who is excited about Knoxville's growing entrepreneurial community is invited to attend on Tuesday, September 20 at the Mill & Mine.

At Startup Day, six of Knoxville's best startups will pitch their companies before a live audience and a panel of judges for the chance to win up to $10,000. Audience members will vote for their favorite startup to be awarded the $7,000 Crowd Favorite Award, presented by the Innov865 Alliance. The $3,000 Judges' Choice Award is sponsored by Truist.

Innovation Crossroads cohort two alumnus Don DeRosa of Eonix will be among the pitchers.

The event will also feature the Traction Award, presented by Verizon, to a Startup Day alum who has gained the most momentum over the past few years, and a fireside chat with local entrepreneurs.
