Pundits view, people with actual knowledge are free to modify:

Chatt*Lab = Tim, Jason and friends are sharing a makerspace / shop area 
under the motivations that sharing rent, expenses, tools, experience, 
knowledge.. are better when shared and not in a individuals house.
(Asking Jason at 2am "can I borrow your drill press?" might not be safe)

Co-Lab = Regional small investors attempt to shotgun invest in small 
dot.com's hoping to discover the next facesplatgroupun... while acting a 
bit like a community thing. For example, Lampost Group does the same 
thing, without seeming acting like a community thing.

GigTank = short termed buzz fueled version of the above, at Co-Lab, trying 
to lure out of the region visionaries into Chattanooga. Seems to have an 
EPB and Tech Council connection.
