Basecamp

The Enterprise Center hosts Basecamp, a coworking day in Miller Plaza that takes place once a month, June through September.

People gather to work, and network, at Waterhouse Pavilion, taking advantage of EPB WiFi. The Enterprise Center organizes this free event, which includes refreshments and various programming throughout the day, including 1 Million Cups, a speaker at lunchtime, and other educational opportunities and entertainment.


The event attracts people from all sectors who have a common interest in building community around the innovation economy. The program aims to foster relationships between people and organizations in the Innovation District and build energy leading up to Startup Week Chattanooga in October, the annual event that celebrates Chattanooga’s entrepreneurial community.
