REALIZING A REGIONAL VISION
Launch connects the Tennessee Valley through private-public collaborative efforts to ensure our region continues to prosper. We’re working toward a shared vision, advancing our region’s economic growth in three strategic focus areas: Workforce, Entrepreneurship, and Land Use/Infrastructure.
Elected officials and business leaders met to discuss what working together as a region would look like. Today, North Alabama is experiencing the results of that collaboration through the 220+ mile greenway, Singing River Trail, offering quality of life, workforce recruitment and retention, and entrepreneurship benefits to our communities.
Launch and Singing River Trail bring our region’s entrepreneurs with a budding business idea to pitch their endeavor to a panel of judges in an effort to win cash prizes and launch their vision. This annual event is making a positive impact on North Alabama’s entrepreneurship ecosystem and diversifying the regional economy.
