The Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce and the Nashville Entrepreneur Center announced finalists for the Next Awards, a celebration of business and entrepreneurship in Middle Tennessee.
The awards ceremony, set for Nov. 17 at the Omni Nashville Hotel, honors top companies and entrepreneurs in 12 categories, including health care innovation, technology and social enterprise.
“Nashville is being touted by recognized entrepreneurial authorities like the Kauffman Foundation as a community with strong infrastructure to support business startups,” Chamber President and CEO Ralph Schulz said. “The Next Awards salute those who have played an important role in helping to create that entrepreneurial environment.”
New this year are honors for funders, mentors, intrapreneurial companies, business culture and “game-changers.”
“These finalists represent some of the most innovative minds in the region’s business community,” said Michael Brody-Waite, CEO, Nashville Entrepreneur Center. “They deserve to be recognized for the creativity and focus they’ve demonstrated in building a vision for their organization and making it a reality.”
