About the Advisors:
Lisa Garner: Lisa Garner, like a true entrepreneur, pulls double duty. On one hand, she’s the Executive Director of theCO, an entrepreneur center that she helped start in Jackson, TN. On the other hand, she’s the owner and head maker at Garner Blue, a retail and online company selling her hand dyed indigo textiles and accessories. Lisa’s background is in branding and design, and running two companies has given her no shortage of experience. Among her many skills, she specializes in management, operations, retail merchandising & online sales.
Ben Harris: Ben Harris is the definition of serial entrepreneur. After a successful stint in commercial real estate, Ben & his wife Monica bought the award-winning Dumplins restaurant in Jackson, TN. Ben ran the restaurant for five years, and then sold it to have the time to focus on his next businesses, theCO and POPVOX, an award winning nonpartisan platform for civic engagement and governing. As Program Director of theCo’s Driving Innovation Program, Ben is focused on advancing entrepreneurship across the state. Hes great at analyzing business financials, an expert at building teams, and experienced at raising capital. Oh, and his background in aviation comes in really handy pretty often
