Hello! My name is Tess MacCurdy. I am a native Nashvillian currently attending Northeastern University in Boston, MA as a sophomore. I am a Communication Studies major with a minor in Sociology and I am aiming to work in the Marketing and Advertising industry.
Why share the ride? Ridesharing or “carpooling” helps cut transportation costs, congestion, and air pollution. These issues are ongoing and constantly growing. At a recent meeting about issues in the community, Senator Bill Ketron stated that he has to leave 15 minutes earlier to get from Murfreesboro to Nashville compared to last year.
As an intern for Hytch this spring, I have been given the opportunity to write a blog post about my experience with the company. I have been an intern for about two months, but have already learned a great deal about the company, as well as the business world in general.
In August of 2016, the Hytch team began an adventure that would solidify a lasting connection with Vanderbilt University. Mark Cleveland, our CEO, and Christian Bruckman, our Director of Business Development, teamed up with the Vanderbilt University Engineering School to represent Hytch as a client for the students in their Enterprise System Design class.
My name is Matt McConnell and I am an intern at Hytch this spring semester. I am studying Business Administration at Belmont University and will be graduating in May of 2017.
My name is Ryan Lemp, a senior Business major at Belmont University from Northern Virginia. I am currently interning with Hytch, looking to gain the necessary tools and experiences to further my career

This past Thursday, Hytch partners attended the Nashville Technology Council's 8th Annual Award Show where Mayor Megan Barry spoke as the keynote speaker. Per usual our Mayor gave an engaging and inspiring speech, acknowledging all of the amazing accomplishments our businesses are achieving every day.
If you have any experience at all driving throughout Nashville you have seen our H.O.V (High Occupancy Vehicle) lanes. H.O.V lanes have been in use in the state of Tennessee since 1993. H.O.V lanes were instituted, "to promote ridesharing in order to reduce congestion on urban interstates. The central concept for H.O.V lanes is to move more people rather than more cars." as stated by the Tennessee Department of Transportation.
Hytch recognized the necessity for a high level of community engagement and made the strategic decision to create alliances with institutions throughout the Nashville and Middle TN by recruiting young, bright and eager to learn students.
