VC Update: Nashville

During a recent M&A conference here, Atlanta-based VC Allen Moseley (left), his tongue planted firmly in cheek, reminded Nashville entrepreneurs they don't need to go to the coasts for capital, because Noro-Moseley is only 3.5 hours away, down Interstate 24. That conference hit a number of nerves here, and prompted VNC to step-up further our efforts to learn more about Nashville VCs' perspectives, the first instalment of which now appears on the VNC website. Readers may also find it useful to read recently installed Noro-Moseley General Partner Greg Foster's views on what he sees as a big opportunity for digital-media startups in the Southeast, even though his take on it, inevitably, seems Atlanta-centric. Meanwhile, for more on our chat with local execs with Petra Capital, Council Ventures and Solidus, please read more here.
