Milt Capps has taken another look at Middle Tennessee's need to attract, cultivate and retain high-end engineering and IT talent. He reports on the conversation at a recent meeting hosted by Vanderbilt professor Germain Boer, where Shareable Ink CEO Stephen Hau said Nashville has all the ingredients for high-tech success in health care, "except for the engineers."
Many of Hau's comments seem to translate into a pressing need to create a critical mass of superior engineering talent that can be virtually, if not literally under one roof in Nashville, close enough to network, spark ideas and encourage one another onward to address tough engineering problems. He made clear he's thinking-through the matter with others and is likely to take some collaborative action, at some point.
