About GIGTANK 365
GIGTANK 365 is a boutique accelerator for startups developing ultra high-bandwidth business applications. Located Chattanooga, TN, the program invites innovators from across the globe to leverage the city’s fiber optic network and robust entrepreneurial resources to launch next-generation businesses. GIGTANK 365 centers around three industry verticals – 3D printing, software defined networking (SDN) and healthcare – while keeping its doors open to inventive startups of all varieties. Held in three cycles occurring year-round, the program connects participants with on-the-ground guidance from industry experts and national thought leaders in broadband and entrepreneurship. The full experience culminates with Chattanooga Demo Day, where top startups pitch their business concepts to a large audience of investors, partners, media and supporters.

About Chattanooga, "The Gig City"
Chattanooga is the first city in the Western Hemisphere to offer 10-gigabit-per-second fiber internet service to all residents and businesses. At hundreds of times the speed of the national average, the Gig opens the door to unimagined ways of learning, playing and conducting business. As more cities "light up” their own infrastructures, Chattanooga is serving as a model, partner and technology provider to these newly connected cities. Chattanooga also happens to be a great place to live and recently was voted Outside Magazine's "Best Town Ever" for the second time.
