7 Undeniable Reasons Ecommerce Businesses Love To Call Nashville Home
We may be biased, but Nashville is pretty great for ecommerce brands. Here’s the top 7 reasons that make Nashville the perfect fit for your ecommerce business.
1. Density of Talent
Nashville is known for it’s music, so needless to say there is a lot of creative talent floating around. Nashville also has a high density of top schools. These things combined causes a great deal of talent to flock to Nashville and provides an incredible work force with dynamic talent: both creative and highly technical and educated.
And don’t be mistaken. Not all of the talent is in the music industry. Nashville is also a healthcare hub so there is an incredible amount of technical and scientific talent as well.
Don’t believe us? Just take a look at the sheer influx of people that are moving to Nashville!
100 people are moving to Nashville every day and it is the top location for incoming students in the country!
2. Density of Success
I used to live in New York, where success was hard to come by. When I walked into a coffee shop to grab a coffee there, I looked around and everyone else in the store was out of work, struggling to succeed. Then I moved to Nashville, and the situation was completely different. When I go to a coffee shop here and chat with people, 8 out of 10 times they are doing something massively successful and interesting.
Now, this is just personal experience, but this culture of success makes a big difference if you’re running your own business.
Success begets success. In Nashville there is this positive energy due to this density of success and people are more willing to network and help each other out because of it.
3. Location Location Location
Nashville is centrally located, so whether your are talking about shipping or business travel, trips all over the US are quick and easy.
4. Local Government
Many big companies are moving to Nashville due to the commitment of our local government to making it a great place to do business. There are tax incentives and entrepreneur friendly laws that make it a highly attractive location.
Not to mention your employees will love you for basing your company in a state where there is no state income tax.
5. Quality of Life
Nashville is incredibly affordable, so both you and your employees can have a very high quality of life. You can afford a great house and a great life for a fraction of the cost of most other major cities. Not to mention, there are great schools for kids, vibrant city life, and manageable traffic (even though we still like to complain about it).
6. Business Community
There is a very active business community in Nashville to help inspire and motivate you on your path to success, and unlike many other places, the community is highly supportive (and even collaborative) rather than competitive.
No matter your industry, there are tons of events and groups for business leaders to network and learn together.
7. Growing in Companies
Many big name companies have led the movement and already picked up and moved to Nashville. And if it is lucrative for these massive companies like Nissan, Bridgestone, and Mars to have their headquarters in Nashville, we bet it will be lucrative for you as well.
In addition, these companies moving to Nashville improves the quality of the business culture and the talent base for all.
