Our Mission

The Enterprise Center brings together people, organizations, and technology to build an advanced and inclusive future for our community.

Our goal is simple — to make life better for all Chattanoogans. We work with the City of Chattanooga and Hamilton County to help grow the economy through closing the digital divide, ensuring entrepreneurs and other workers have access to resources they need to succeed, and ensuring that residents of all ages and backgrounds benefit from the expansion of Smart City technology.

The Enterprise Center is both a visionary in our community — imagining solutions to complex problems — and a convener, bringing together organizations of all kinds (educational, government, private companies, foundations, nonprofits) to create innovative solutions to our community’s biggest challenges.
