Sandbox adds Chattanooga hub

Sandbox, a mobile society for top inventors and entrepreneurs under the age of 30, is inviting local young adults to apply to its latest hub in Chattanooga.

Started in 2008 in Zurich, Switzerland, Sandbox has curated a group of 1,000 members in 80 countries who are emerging leaders in business, art, academia and social change.

Chattanooga is the only hub city in the Southeast for Sandbox and will be led by Tiffanie Robinson, the founder and CEO of WayPaver; Isaiah Smallman, the co-founder of Fancy Rhino; Meshal Lakhani, a singer/songwriter; and Toni Gemayal, co-founder of Flint. Sandbox will elect about 10 new Sandboxers this year.
