Calvetti Ferguson has joined LaunchTN in its mission to provide capital and connections to startups throughout the state. 

“Calvetti Ferguson is known for providing value to their clients above and beyond accounting services,” LaunchTN development director Emily Masters said. “As they bring their long-standing expertise as a Top 200 firm to their new offices here in Tennessee, we are excited to have the opportunity to partner with them to move our mission forward and help introduce them to the entrepreneurial ecosystem in our state.”

With a combined $50,000 donation of dollars and in-kind support, our firm becomes a 2024 LaunchTN INNOVATOR. 

As a part of the partnership, we will offer LaunchTN portfolio companies access to accounting “toolkits” to support best practices for startups. This will be a valuable offering for LaunchTN’s current portfolio companies and the companies joining the LaunchTN portfolio as they receive investments from the new $70-million InvestTN fund. 

“This strategic partnership will position LaunchTN and Calvetti Ferguson to collaborate in creating a positive impact for entrepreneurs and innovators in Tennessee,” said Nicholas McClay, Nashville office managing partner for Calvetti Ferguson. “As entrepreneurs ourselves, we continuously strive to be the accounting firm of choice serving entrepreneurial, growth-oriented companies. LaunchTN is the perfect partner as we look to help invest, empower, and elevate entrepreneurship in Tennessee.” 

The partnership is designed to highlight the mission alignment of LaunchTN and Calvetti Ferguson and to establish Calvetti Ferguson, a startup-friendly firm, as an active ambassador for the work of LaunchTN.
