Techville rises from Middle Tennessee

Friday, April 24, 2009

The Nashville Technology Council broke ground on Techville today, according to the company press release.  I find this most interesting as cities and states position themselves as destinations for particular industries.

I would bet that most people would think of Nashville as the hub for Music or Healthcare. And if you asked which cities are the tech beds of the U.S., you would surely see Silicone Valley and Seattle on the list. Other cities might include Salt Lake City (maybe a bit biased as this author currently lives there),  New York, Boston or Austin, TX.

But Nashville?

According to the Techville web site,, Nashville boasts quite a roster of technology companies. The map displays 158 companies and the online site has 327 companies represented. The Nashville Technology Council is going to great lengths to position itself among the top locations for technology companies. Techville is one element that is on target for gaining awareness of this industry for Nashville.
