Entrepreneurs are the leaders who are transforming industries and improving lives in Nashville and beyond, and in the wake of a challenging 2020, the entrepreneurial spirit is more important than ever.
After a year of unprecedented change and renewed dedication from Middle Tennessee founders, they were recognized for their remarkable contribution. The 2021 NEXT Awards celebrated the achievements of those who dug deep, adapted, and created new opportunities over the last year on October 25, 2021 at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center.
