A couple EO Nashville members have been receiving media mentions left and right over the past few weeks.

Jason Moore

Jason Moore

Jason Moore, CEO of the health care data company Stratasan, was profiled as Startup America’s featured member of the day. Jason was also recently interviewed by the Nashville Business Journal to be included in an article about building Nashville’s tech community.

Jason’s business partner, Tod Fetherling, chairman of Stratasan, was asked by the Business Journal to weigh-in on the likelihood of a Google expansion in Nashville. EO Nashville member and President and CEO of the Nashville Entrepreneur Center, Michael Burcham, was also interviewed for the article.

The Evansville Courier & Press featured Stratasan’s startup story in an article titled, “Entrepreneurial spirit: Henderson native says business incubator could benefit this area.” Stratasan also provided “a comprehensive evaluation and assessment of community statistics, demographics and consumer behavior, assessment of community health data and evaluation of community surveys” to the Cumberland Medical Center, a fact recently covered by the Crossville Chronicle.

Darek Bell

Darek Bell, owner/distiller of Corsair Artisan Distillery, had his Triple Smoke Whiskey featured in the latest Wine Spectator. Download the article (“Whiskeys_on_the_Wild_Side“) here.

Darek was also included in a Tennessean story on the burgeoning local whiskey and bourbon market. SouthComm Publications showed some more Corsair love: the Nashville Post wrote about Darek winning best whiskey at the American Distilling Institute, beating 240 other competitors, and the Nashville Scene Bites Blog profiled all of Corsair’s recent accolades.

Congratulations to both Jason and Darek.
