Want to get involved at KEC?  Not sure where you fit in? The first step is attending a KEC LiftOff, where you’ll find out what we do and how we can help you take the next step toward your dream. We offer LiftOff every other week on Tuesdays and alternate between evening and afternoon sessions. Register for a time that fits your schedule below.

*Due to COVID-19 restrictions, LiftOff will take place virtually and attendees will be sent a Zoom link to join.


At every LiftOff, we’ll talk about upcoming events, as well as Knoxville Entrepreneur Center’s core functions. In addition, KEC LiftOff is your first meeting with a panel of our amazing community business mentors. Afterward, you can schedule more one-on-one meeting with one of our mentors, sign up for classes, or attend one of our social events. The goal is for you to learn about us, and for us to learn how we can help you.


Achieving your goals isn’t easy, and doesn’t always happen between the hours of 9 and 5. We have two convenient times each month to meet your scheduling needs. LiftOff sessions occur every other Tuesday at either 12:30 PM or 5:30 PM.

Spots at KEC LiftOff are limited. It is critical that you RSVP and that you keep your appointment. If you cannot attend for any reason, please let us know so that we can offer your spot to another dreamer. And you can always register for the next one!
