Presented by TennSMART, the Smart Mobility Challenge is an 11-week entrepreneurship education program that uses real and active intellectual property from Tennessee-based research and academic institutions to foster commercialization.

Modeled from the successful Scipreneur Challenge for the life science industry, program participants create a business based on the supplied IP, gaining hands-on experience in conceptualizing and creating a viable and marketable business opportunity for the technology. Areas of focus include: Electric Vehicles and Electrification, Connected and Automated Vehicles, Freight and Logistics, Automotive, Cybersecurity, Multimodal Commuting, and Aerospace. The program concludes with a pitch event to investors and industry experts. 

From there, the participants can move into the next phase of our programs to launch real businesses with ongoing support from the TennSMART Mentor Network and other business incubation resources.

Our first Smart Mobility Challenge will kick off February 15 and run through April 25.
