Innovation Catalyst: Strategic Realignment Final Event

Join CNM and entrepreneur, investor, and author, Marcus Whitney, in celebrating the endeavors and efforts of the 2020-2021 Innovation Catalyst: Strategic Realignment. At this final event, Impact Teams from the cohort will pitch their new business ideas to a panel of potential funders or investors. Following the presentations, a People's Choice Award will be selected and announced. Be the first to hear the new revenue ideas as each Impact Team works to further their mission and create a more sustainable future!

Marcus Whitney will open our event with delivering a keynote address sharing his professional and life experiences as a successful entrepreneur. As co-founder and minority in Nashville's first Major League Soccer team, Nashville SC, Marcus knows first-hand the importance of community investment and opportunity. 

The final presentations of the iCat cohort represent an intensive seven-month process with five dedicated nonprofit Impact Teams of nonprofit leaders, board members, and volunteers developing new ventures and approaches for alternative revenue streams
