This week I had a lot of fun attending a summer mixer for technology professionals hosted by CentreSource
which is a full service digital marketing agency based in Nashville. CenterSource is an INC 5000 company (2011 and 2012) that has been in business for over 10 years with a wide array of clients from start ups to healthcare to non- profits. Pretty impressive! They also have a really cool headquarters office in a historic old home near downtown Nashville.
CentreSource is just one of many thriving technology firms in the Nashville area which has seen significant growth since ISI opened our office in Franklin (nearby suburb) in 2005. Whether it be in web development, cloud computing, managed services or a myriad of IT solutions, Nashville has rapidly become the destination of choice for the best and brightest in the tech world.
As I mingled through the crowd (over 150 attendees), I spoke to tech professionals who had moved to Nashville from places like Washington DC, California and New York all telling me that they see significant opportunity in the Nashville area. They also noted how community organizations like the Nashville Tech Council and the Entrepreneur Center reinforced their decision to move to the area by demonstrating long term commitment to startups and growing technology in Middle Tennessee now and in the future.
After leaving this very fun event I must say I was newly inspired to work even harder with my team to grow ISI's business in the Nashville area and take advantage of a serious market opportunity. Looking forward to some exciting times ahead in Music City!
