Chattanooga, TN (PRWEB) April 30, 2013
Catalyst Chattanooga is a local group of forward-thinking professionals whose mission is to create a more hospitable and supportive environment for entrepreneurs in Chattanooga in an effort to attract and retain talent. They do this through volunteer work with incubators and other organizations that seek to bring long-term economic growth and prosperity to Chattanooga. FwdHealth quickly recognized that there were others in their lives who have helped pave their pathway to success, and are proud to take a similar “pay it forward” approach. Catalyst Chattanooga’s main goal is to empower others through business to create local value and offer opportunity where it may have been scarce in the past.
“Catalyst is on a mission to curb the hand out mentality and empower others through business to create local value and wealth by giving them a hand up,” said Shayne Woods, President of FwdHealth.
Catalyst Chattanooga’s plan is to grow its network of hungry entrepreneurs, business and community leaders. In addition to doing some good in the neighborhood, Woods notes “Catalyst is a great way to get out and socialize with other entrepreneurs and discover other innovative products and services around the GigCity.”
“Catalyst Chattanooga is a group of young professionals that are self-organizing and connecting with established partners like the Chattanooga Chamber and Launch Chattanooga,” said Maria Noel, the Chattanooga Chamber’s Director of African American Business Development. “We’re glad to partner with Catalyst Chattanooga in connecting with our broader business network while engaging with other existing entrepreneurial resources.”
