Taylor Duncan


Born and raised in Chicago. Went to University of Wisconsin to play Football and Track & Field. Transferred to U of IL and graduated with a degree in Finance. Had a taste of entrepreneurship in college in a house painting leadership program. Ended up buying the IL division when I graduated and eventually ran the national company with ~1000 sales people annually. Sold my shares in 2020 and moved to Nashville to enjoy an open state with my amazing wife and 5 kids. And in 2021 joined forces with a former mentee of mine in the Tech recruiting space and are growing Nxt Level here in Nash. We have hired a dozen people in Nash in the last 6 months and plan on doubling that in the next year. During

that we have launched Founders Live in Nashville as an event based entrepreneurial pitch competition, but really it is just a big party with founders pitching their respective start ups in mid-TN. In my free time I am active at my church, try to work out and volunteer in the local youth sports programs.
