Supporting Tennessee's Economy and People

The Tennessee Business Roundtable (TBR) develops and advocates for pro-business public policy that optimizes the quality of life and well-being of all Tennesseans. Founded in 1983, TBR has partnered successfully with five Governors and hundreds of business, no-profit, academic, and government stakeholders to create and promote policies that have contributed significantly to the success of the Volunteer State’s economy and people, particularly in public education.

Guided by the belief that an educated, healthy populace and sound state fiscal policies are the primary drivers of Tennessee’s vibrant economy, TBR brings together ideas, information and thought leaders with a view to becoming the most respected and influential policy voice for Tennessee’s business community. Led by senior officials and strategic thinkers representing many of Tennessee’s most-respected business enterprises, TBR takes a collaborative approach to public policy development
