Bridgestone Americas and Vanderbilt University join forces for ‘radical collaboration’
Nashville’s excellence is greater than the sum of its parts. We have an astonishing degree of diversity in our economic base — from music to health care to automotive — the entirety of which is thriving.
To what do we owe that success, though? Collaboration. Nashville’s distinct sense of community fosters a willingness to transcend industries and sectors for the sake of innovation, problem-solving and co-creation. When we tap into the strengths of individuals and organizations beyond our usual networks, we gain the potential for new ideas and fresh perspectives.
