Tennessee Valley Corridor

The Tennessee Valley Corridor, Inc., is a non-profit 501(c)(6) regional economic development organization, led by a blue-ribbon board of directors, dedicated to uniting partners from across the region to:

  1. support and expand federal and state missions and investments in the Corridor;
  2. to leverage the Corridor's growing science and technology assets for maximum new job creation and next generation manufacturing in the region; and
  3. to promote the Tennessee Valley Corridor as one of the premier science and technology regions in the nation.

Progress reports on Corridor initiatives are presented and collaborative efforts are explored and developed. The TVC provides opportunities to identify common issues,  a widening of the network of contacts, identifies areas where we can work together and continues to fulfill the District’s mission to provide regional progress through regional cooperation.
