Venture Forum model for Nashville eyes
In Memphis last week, 22 fledgling companies presented their business plans to an audience of about 200 gathered at the FedEx Institute of Technology, for the 6th Annual Musculoskeletal New Ventures Conference (MNVC). The co-sponsors are Memphis Bioworks Foundation (MBF) and MB Venture Partners. This is the kind of thing that might one day occur in Nashville, if the Chamber and Partnership 2010 continue on their path toward creating a 'Virtual Entrepreneur Center'. The closest thing we have, right now, is the general business plan competition conducted biannually by the Nashville Business Incubation Center (NBIC).
