What is the tennessee valley corridor?

The Tennessee Valley Corridor (TVC) is a 501-c-6 regional non-profit organization that works across 13 contiguous congressional districts in 5 states to promote the TVC’s national leadership in science and technology through regional cooperation. Our mission is to sustain the Tennessee Valley Corridor’s existing federal missions, compete for and attract new federal investments, and leverage those investments for more private sector job creation. Through the leadership of our Board of Directors, Institutional Liaisons and Leadership Council members, the TVC convenes an annual National Summit, promotes initiatives to advance the TVC’s mission and leadership, and encourages on-going collaborations in national security, energy, environment, science, space, transportation, education, and workforce development.
