Tech professionals are flocking to Nashville. According to a Bloomberg analysis of LinkedIn jobs data, the Greater Nashville area had the second-biggest wave of tech migration from May 2020 to April 2021. The only city that beat out Nashville was Austin, Texas.
The influx isn’t enough. With startup innovation levels sky-high in Nashville and companies like Amazon and Oracle moving to the area and hiring thousands of new people, this rising tech hub still needs more talent.
The Greater Nashville Technology Council is investing to keep the momentum going and continue attracting great workers with a new marketing campaign, and community organization Launch Tennessee (LaunchTN), is also working hard to make Tennessee a startup-friendly state.
Nashville State Community College is trying to fill the gap. Nashville State is partnering with area employers to provide a pipeline of skilled professionals by offering programming certificates, bootcamps, and internship opportunities in the Nashville area.
