Best of 2016

2016 has been a year full of new endeavors, continued traditions, and revised programs. Here are a few of our favorite highlights. Can't wait to make more memories next year!


We gathered a dozen local college students to host our first Eureka weekend. They were challenged to come up with creative business solutions for four local organizations in a major time crunch. Read all about it here.

Dev Catalyst

CO:de Catalyst was renamed Dev Catalyst and now involves nearly twenty schools. Some of our top students got a chance to work with Kid President on creating a Socktober website this summer. (Read about it here.) And, of course, we had a blast in San Francisco this summer as always!


We hosted our second annual celebration of theCOtoberfest and added some fun new elements like Our Jackson Home’s A Night of Storytelling event and a patio mural—and we can’t wait till 2017!

the CO:mobile

We finally got the CO:mobile (our mobile innovation lab) up and running and are now travelling throughout West Tennessee sharing about what opportunities theCO has to offer.
