Company Description

Tennessee Community Ventures (TNCV) focuses on technology transfer, seed and early stage investment opportunities. They seek to identify technologies, products and/or services that offer a unique solution to a specific point of pain or opportunity for their respective industries, lend themselves to business models that offer a clear path to profitability with modest capital needs and promote scalable cost structures that create competitive advantages. Investment opportunities are evaluated based on an ability to deliver exceptional financial returns while transforming and diversifying Tennessee's economic base through the creation of quality jobs and community wealth. They are generalists and are always interested in special situations that present unique opportunities outside their past experiences, which include technology enabled products and services, e-commerce, digital media, manufacturing, advanced materials, specialty food products, ethnic products and services, and business and retail services.TNCV has a unique partnership and direct interaction with the University of Tennessee Research Foundation and has committed significant capital to proof- of-concept investments, which are expected to range from $50,000 to $100,000. More traditional seed and early stage initial investments typically range from $250,000 to $750,000 and target the funding gap between start-up and later stage institutional venture rounds. TNCV's target investment size over the life of each portfolio company is between $1 million and $2 million. The target investment size is likely achieved through multiple rounds of investment in each portfolio company, with follow-on investments receiving the same level of diligence and scrutiny as initial investments.
