Nashville’s entrepreneurs have been brainstorming about how to make life better. This week, they presented 38 of their ideas to city leaders.
No surprise, traffic got the most attention. The business owners made a number of suggestions. They include encouraging more companies to let employees work from home or shift their schedules to miss rush hour.
In education, coding needs to be a required course, says Charles May, president of the Nashville Chapter of Entrepreneurs’ Organization.
“One of the ideas was the widespread teaching of coding and computer education systems at the middle school level,” he said at a press conference Tuesday.
Nashville Mayor Megan Barry, who was in the room, said she liked the coding idea most. She also got excited by a pitch to become the first city to conduct elections online.
