Our 2018 program will run from dinner on 10/8 through lunch on 10/12 in Chattanooga, TN.

Applications will close on 8/1 at 11:59 PM, PT.

We will take up to 20 companies. We focus on quality, as determined by team and traction earned to date.

This is absolutely free. We do not ask for equity or a program fee.

We are focused on founders building revolutionary businesses in supply chain and transportation, globally. Competitive companies will have a strong team, a product/service built, and early traction with customers/users. Those companies that are looking to raise a seed or Series A would benefit from our focus on relevant operational advice and customer introductions.

We are being very intentional with the corporates we have involved. We will have a broad range of industries and supply chain providers present. Check out website (dynamo.vc/camp) and blog (blog.dynamo.vc) for weekly updates.

A variety of functional areas will be covered (establishing a customer success team, design in supply chain, lessons learned from early partnerships, et al) based on our conversations with startups and portfolio companies. You also have the ability to share topics of interest in your application to inform our curriculum.

The concept of a "camp" draws from our hometown, Chattanooga's heritage and strength as a capital for logistics technology and an epicenter for outdoor culture. We'll experience both during our time together.

Thank you to our supporters
