Podcasting from Knoxville along the banks of the mighty Tennessee river, this is the Startup Knox Podcast featuring interviews with local entrepreneurs about their startups. I’m your host, Brandon Bruce. Join me every week to meet the local innovators striving to build the next wave of disruptive companies. We cover the gamut of the startup experience – the proverbial rollercoaster. The high highs of getting the first customer, hiring a great team, and landing a key investment. And the low lows of parting ways with a co-founder, losing a strategic account, and running out of cash. Not to mention the everyday stresses of meeting payroll, battling competitors, and navigating black swan events like a global pandemic.

Join me for the first episode where I’ll talk with Anna Douglas, founder of SkyNano Technologies which recently raised $3.8 million dollars to further develop its patent-pending technology for making carbon supermaterials.
