Nashville’s health-tech startup scene has also benefited from significant investment from local organizers and government officials. 

In November, the Greater Nashville Venture Capital Association, or GNVCA, officially launched. The organization is membership-based and aims to make capital and talent more widely available to investors in the region by attracting new VCs, organizing networking events and sourcing investment opportunities. 

Vanderbilt provided a grant to support the GNVCA’s initial operations, according to a blog post

The GNVCA was able to launch partly because a “critical mass” of VC firms have now set up shop in Nashville, said Marcus Whitney, a member of GNVCA’s board and a co-founder and partner of the firm Jumpstart Health Investors.
