NTC yesterday that in addition to his online
career services for the Wireless and Mobile
Internet industries, he'll soon launch here in
Nashville an allied recruitment-advertising
agency, dubbed ActiveJobNet -- as well as
several new portals aimed at professionals in
digital sectors. Moore, a 45-year-old native of
Orlando, also plans a series of acquisitions,
beginning with a "Silicon Alley" software
operation he declined to identify, which he plans
to buy and relocate to Nashville. Among his
strategies for recruiting talented employees and
candidates for ActiveWireless employer-clients:
academic partnerships with Vanderbilt and Belmont
that afford graduate students exposure to online
enterprise. Moore cites Nashville's strategic
location, relatively low cost of living and
greater access to the nation's digital-industries
talent pool as key factors in his relocation
decision. Moore says he'll be targeting every U.S.
university in the nation for digital talent, from
Nashville. ActiveWireless' Nashville headcount
should quickly reach 25. Related: Nash. Bus.
