Last week, Kelli Nowers, community coordinator at Nashville Entrepreneur Center, shared her favorite aspects of NEXT Awards (podcast here), and also available below. Corey Davis talks about NEXT Awards below, and why your company needs to apply and/or nominate Nashville's best here

Davis' favorite part of the evening is the energy. “The event doesn’t feel like your average run-of-the-mill awards show. And like I said, these are a lot of companies that normally aren’t getting a lot of exposure like this.”

In line with these values, the Nashville Chamber of Commerce recently launchedBusiness Studio, designed to support small businesses and introduce them to available resources, as well as shining a light on new successful businesses and showcasing collaborative efforts.
