With the kickoff of its fifth cohort, Greater Nashville Technology Council’s Emerging Leaders in Technology program is adding more big names to its list of company participants. Recently, Amazon and AllianceBernstein partnered with ELITE through sponsorship, mentorship and employee mentees.
These new partners are just one of the many signs of growth of ELITE. This year, the number of program applicants doubled year-over-year to more than 70 applicants from nearly 60 companies.
Founded five years ago, NTC’s ELITE is a tech mentorship program that aims to foster and groom Nashville’s next tech executives through a 12-week program that includes classroom curriculum, one-on-one mentorship with veteran executives and peer support groups.
