Name: Navigate Podcast Launch Party
Date: January 29, 2019
Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM CST
Event Description:
Did you know that Nashville was recently named the 4th best place to start a business in the United States?

Did you know that there are over 250 organizations in Nashville dedicated to supporting entrepreneurs in some form or fashion?

Did you know that Nashville’s small business owners lead the nation in optimism?

You’re invited to the official launch party of a new podcast celebrating and spotlighting Nashville’s entrepreneurs: Navigate.

Navigate will feature stories of local business founders as they share their successes, failures and lessons learned, providing tips and insights along the way that illustrate how to navigate startup life right here in Music City.

Powered by the Nashville Entrepreneur Center, Navigate is hosted by EC team members Brynn Plummer and Clark Buckner. Join us as we begin to uncover the behind-the-scenes (and how to better access) of Nashville’s resource-rich entrepreneurial ecosystem. We’ll introduce you to new and familiar voices who makes our city one of the best places in the country for entrepreneurship.

At this LIVE podcast event, we will have a conversation with entrepreneur-extraordinaire Mignon Francois. A true hometown hero, Mignon is the Founder and CEO of The Cupcake Collection. While crunching numbers and creating the craze are amongst her job requirements, her favorite responsibilities are giving hugs, listening and mentoring her team and other up-and-coming entrepreneurs who seek to learn from her grassroots experience.

Using her “Follow Your Spirit” approach, Mignon developed an iconic flavor profile that drew lines and attention to her hip, historic Germantown neighborhood. The Cupcake Collection’s success was icing on the cake amongst the existing North Nashville restaurateurs, igniting a new movement to the area for other business concepts. Since planting its roots in 2008, Mignon’s business savvy has earned her the titles of “Woman of Legend and Merit” by Tennessee State University, “Emerging Business Leader of the Year” and Black Enterprise Magazine’s “Family Business of the Year Award”.
