Business TN’s Hot 100

The Nashville Hot 100 Reception

I was privileged Tuesday night to mingle among some of Nashville’s best and brightest entrepreneurial minds.

The Hermitage Hotel is the 2009 sponsor of Business TN’s Hot 100, an annual list of the fastest growing companies across our state that are brimming with promise.  The first of four receptions honoring these talented folks was held Tuesday night in the hotel’s veranda and was attended by close to 100 individuals.  It was a wonderful night spent networking and meeting new friends.

I wanted to send my congratulations once more to the local companies and individuals honored Tuesday night.  In the face of challenging economic times, your entrepreneurial spirit and optimism are a large part of what continues to set Nashville and Tennessee apart.

Pick up the Nov/Dec edition of Business TN for the full list of honorees.

Thank you to all who attended and for demonstrating again that The Hermitage Hotel is the premier gathering spot for the ‘who’s-who” of Nashville.

The Memphis Reception

Our celebration of Tennessee’s fastest growing companies continued Wednesday night when we honored Memphis-area members of the Business TN Hot 100 at the fabulous Peabody Hotel.

More than 20 business leaders joined us for a fun evening. It was wonderful to meet some of the leading lights of West Tennessee’s business community. Just like in Nashville the night before, everyone I met was excited about the prospects for a stronger business climate in the months to come. After all, this is the Hot 100! These folks know how to make things happen even in tough times.

It was also gratifying to hear many of the Hot 100 winners in Memphis talk about how, when they visit Nashville, staying at The Hermitage is one of the highlights of their trip.

Stay tuned as The Hermitage Hotel Hot 100 Caravan travels across the state. Next week we’ll be in Knoxville and Chattanooga.
