UT Research Park at Cherokee Farm
Spark Innovation Center
The Spark Innovation Center is the UT Research Park’s focus on entrepreneurship development and commercialization of regional technology-based startup companies. Knoxville was recently rated as the #16 cleantech hub in the country according to Saordah Enterprise Partners, and Spark is a significant contributor to that effort. Spark offers what selected tech startups typically need; available and reasonably-priced laboratory space, prototyping shops and top-level mentorship in business model development, financial planning, and investor readiness. We have demonstrated our ability to support successful startups through securing outside funding and key strategic partnerships and have grown into two prominent programs, our two-year incubator program and our 12-week cleantech accelerator.
Spark Cleantech Accelerator
The 12-week Spark Cleantech Accelerator program was created in partnership with Evergreen Climate Innovations (previously Clean Energy Trust) and other partners to support early-stage cleantech businesses and drive commercialization of their technologies in Tennessee and throughout the Midwest.
