THE VISION:
“For two years, we [Knoxville Overground (KO)] were searching,wondering if it was possible to create a community space and a startup process specifically for the professional and self-employed digital workforce community of Knoxville and the surrounding area.We then came across successful case studies of micro-enterprise development centers (MeDCs) and seed accelerators and asked ourselves, ‘why couldn’t we just do that here?’” 
 
 
THE REALITY:
“We quickly learned that success is 3% having a good idea, 5% planning, 6% hard work and persistence, 7% having keen improvisational leadership, 4% putting the right team together, and,well, the rest is financing.”
