New Growth Partners For Our Entrepreneurs

“Growth Partners” is a new partnership level for companies that offer functional expertise in key foundational areas like accounting, insurance, legal, marketing and human resources for our members and program participants. 

We are excited to welcome three new partnerships: 

  • Accounting Growth Partner: CLA
  • Banking Growth Partner: Pinnacle Financial Partners 
  • Technology Growth Partner: RJ Young

“Growth partners are committed to helping all of our entrepreneurs succeed. With their particular wealth of knowledge in their respective industry, their teams have access to our members and cohorts to share that knowledge and insight, ultimately increasing the odds of success for entrepreneurs in and around Nashville,” says CEO Sam Davidson.

Each growth partner will serve our entrepreneurs in a variety of ways, making themselves available through participation in our programming and curriculum, workshops for members and program participants, personal consultations, and special events.

As we continue to receive commitments, stay tuned for the announcement of additional Growth Partners specializing in areas such as marketing, HR, legal.

A heartfelt thank you to Michael Slavik of CLA, Kevin Roddey of Pinnacle Financial Partners, and Kamron Kunce of RJ Young for their leadership roles in these partnerships and their generous support of the EC’s startups and founders.

EC members will soon have access to Growth Partners through our member portal as needed.
If you offer foundational expertise, we invite you to learn how to become an EC Growth Partner. Contact Chief Strategic Alliances Officer Donna Mattick.
