– The Company Lab (Co.Lab) is a local startup incubator, and Smart Furniture has a strong affinity for startups since we used to be one ourselves.
– Our partner Turnstone is inspired by small businesses, and their line of small office products reflects that inspiration and knowledge of how people work.
– Smart Furniture and Turnstone have given Co.Lab a $25,000 makeover, just in time for their summer-long GigTank startup accelerator.
– We get to show it to the public tonight!
The Chattanooga Times Free Press has already written an article about the makeover (read the article here), so you can read all the beautiful nitty-gritty there if you’d like. It’s pretty cool.
If you’re local to Chattanooga, show up at 5 P.M. for the food and drinks – and to admire the new Co.Lab space – and stay to listen to the speakers tell about how they’ve “Failed Smart” and learned from their mistakes. Our own President and CEO, T.J. Gentle, will be one of the speakers, so I have a vested interest in encouraging you to stick around – it’ll be a good time.
Turnstone’s Small Talks crew will be there as well, with their decked-out bus (and some Maharam fabric Buoy seats that are evidently worth more than my car). You’ll be able to interact with some of the people who are most interested in seeing Chattanooga’s small business scene flourish, including our founder Stephen Culp and members of our fine city’s entrepreneurial community.
The Company Lab
55 E. Main Street, Chattanooga
May 22nd at 5 P.M.
See you there!
