Holland lands looks for Populr

Three-year-old web marketing venture is attracting some interest from potential buyers even though it has a long way to go to fulfill its promise, says founder Nick Holland, who also runs development agency Centresource. Holland tells Milt Capps he'll have to consider a good offer for Populr, but it would take a silly amount of money to get him to uproot his family and relocate with the company should its next owners want to do that.

"I want to win with Populr," whether that's by having a Nashville Tech company realize an "awesome" exit, or by grinding-out a national footprint from Music City, he summarized.

Either way, "plenty of work still needs to be done," he continued, adding that when unsolicited outside interest appears, its inevitably the occasion for reflecting on what is the best path toward success. "The proof is in the pudding," he said.

Digital Reasoning gains traction on Wall Street

Franklin-based Digital Reasoning Systems was founded 14 years ago and has steadily grown since into a global player in the artificial intelligence software arena, mostly by focusing on the war on terrorism. But founder Tim Estes has since 2011 been moving the company into the finance sector, focusing on compliance matters. Clay Dillow at Fortune sat down with Estes and his team to sketch the company's evolution and successes in building beyond military intelligence.

Estes calls the practice “proactive compliance.” With smart software to maintain constant vigilance over every email, instant message, media report, and memo sent within a company, financial firms can pinpoint a person’s intentions to engage in prohibited or illegal activity before they develop into infractions and the subpoenas start flying. In military intelligence work, “You’re basically trying to figure out who talked to who, who else knew about it, and did they act upon it,” Estes says. “That kind of forensic stuff is very similar to the investigations you might have at a bank.”
