Many cities want to replicate the success of Chattanooga's gig network. But every community wanting to drive innovation should also replicate the success of Chattanooga's GIGTANK.

*  changes from last year;
*  benefits of developing apps in a gig environment;  and
*  how Chattanooga individuals and businesses participated with the startups.
