Network Under 40 exists at the intersection of friendship and business. It’s not just about meeting people, it’s about knowing people.


Network Under 40: Nashville exists at the intersection of friendship and business. We understand that we live in a connection economy and the foundation to success in career and personal life hinges on genuine relationships with real people.

We are about mixing business and pleasure, throwing out the conventional wisdom that says you have to change who you are to ‘be professional’. Instead, we encourage you to be real, to have fun, and to cultivate authentic and meaningful relationships around social activities.  

It’s not just about meeting people, it’s about knowing people. Fortunately, there are a lot of cool people for you to get to know at our events, ranging from tables for ten to several hundred person occasions – Learn More.

Sunny Bray

Nashville Director

“Leave things better than you found them” has been a personal mantra of mine for as long as I can remember. I love meeting people and have a passion for serving others. Early on, I came to the understanding of the importance of surrounding yourself with the right people, and this has empowered me to cultivate key relationships with leaders, mentors, and professionals of all backgrounds.

In addition to staying connected in the community, I take pride in and value the personal and professional development that is required to be a successful leader. When I’m not networking or volunteering, you can probably find me doing something outdoors, traveling to a new city, or running through the mud at an obstacle course race.

The 75 year Harvard Study of Adult Development found that “Good relationships keep us happier and healthier. Period. Social connections are really good for us, and that loneliness kills.” It continues to say that, “People who are more socially connected to family, to friends, and to community are happier, physically healthier, and they live longer than people who are less well connected.” This is why I’m bringing Network Under 40 to Nashville!

I’m so very excited to meet you, hear your story and help you in any way I can!
