Each year in October, Chattanooga celebrates its innovation, startup and entrepreneurship communities with Startup Week. The week is packed full of awesome seminars, panels, socials and many more events that bring together people from all corners of the business community and beyond. It’s a week filled with networking, learning and just having a great time with the community.
Earlier this spring, an online community called Chattanooga Eats launched, and it has already made a great impact in the food scene. Chattanooga Eats is a comprehensive guide to Chattanooga’s food scene. It was started by two guys who wanted to explore the local cuisine and make it more accessible to Nooga residents, travelers and tourists. CHA Eats also records podcasts that feature local chefs, restaurant owners and foodies who tell their stories for other Chattanoogans to hear. It’s a foodie (or in my case, food blogger’s) dream website, and the community around it is growing fast.
And of course, we couldn’t have Startup Week without a great food event.
