What is the SMRBS?
The Smoky Mountains Regional Business Summit is an annual conference held in Knoxville, Tennessee that helps FIRST Robotics Competition teams grow their skills in the areas of finance, public relations, branding, team organization, and more. The event is hosted by team 3966, the L&N STEMpunks.
All too often, we hear from teams that they wish they had more funds to work with, or that their team communicated better, or that their team has no "business team!" Hearing this kind of stuff is what lead us to start the Business Summit.
The conference aims to build skills in those often overlooked but critical aspects of having a successful FRC program. It will be a full day of learning, brainstorming, and networking with other teams in the region!
