Here’s the rundown for the past week (and a bit)!
The “Entrepreneur Briefs” section of the Tennessean featured EO Nashville’s “Second in Command” program.
Julie May [bytes of knowledge] tacked the topic of “cowboy coders” in her most recent Tennessean column. In addition, The Nashville Business Journal featured Julie in a Women of Influence true or false article that asked: Do female executives have different traits than men? Julie also wrote another column for Young Upstarts about tracking your progress in an IT project.
Julie May and Debbie Gordon [S3 Asset Management] were each honored as Women of Influence by The Nashville Business Journal.
The Nashville Post wrote an article on a grant from the Blackstone Charitable Foundation that was given to Launch Tennessee [Charlie Brock]. The grant will allow the organization to launch a pilot program that will allow universities to help support existing accelerators. The story was also written up in the Tennessean, Memphis Business Journal, Knoxville News Sentinel, Chattanoogan and Chattagnooga Times Free Press. Charlie also focused his Tennessean column on the grant.
