What:  Members focused on helping each other build successful startups.  

Please check the FAQ section if you have Questions. Your Board of Directors is made up of volunteers with a passion for seeing entrepreneurs succeed!

We've created a wordpress site for Knoxville Startups.  I'm looking for a few volunteers to help build/maintain the site.  We also need some volunteers to support the social media and youtube channels.

I need everyone to edit the page and add their startup: http://www.eokhq.com/group/scss/page/the-scss-list  Austin was able to edit and add closeup.fm with no issues.

I thought some people in this group could appreciate this link. http://designmodo.com/startup/

Everyone needs to complete this submission form: https://docs.google.com/a/eokhq.com/forms/d/16aHK8IF3KdInSamd022fMZ...

It would also be great to have everyone's one page for their startup.  I'm attaching one for FairMechanics.com  It's not perfect but is a start.

So what are we doing here?.. creating a company?

Comment by Austin L. Church on December 9, 2013 at 2:55pm

Smart? That's just a nasty rumor going around. Don't believe a word of it!

Comment by Leonard Knight on December 9, 2013 at 2:50pm

Well...you are a VERY smart person and I value your opinion!

Comment by Austin L. Church on December 9, 2013 at 2:29pm

I see you went with the name I threw out at the KEC meeting. Very cool!
