Kalatech, a cloud-based platform for music professionals in the touring, booking and publishing industries, won “Early Stage Company of the Year” at the sixth annual Nashville Technology Council Awards, held Thursday at the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Kalatech serves some of the Nashville music industry’s best-known artists, songwriters, and industry members, including artists such as Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan, songwriters including Shane McAnally and Brandy Clark, and Tony Conway of booking agency Conway Entertainment Group. Kalatech, a subsidiary of programming and development firm DevDigital, is headed by Brittany Wegusen, one of the small-but-growing number of young, female IT entrepreneurs making waves in the Nashville music business scene.
“Since launching in May 2014, we’ve experienced rapid growth, and we now have more than 70 clients,” Wegusen said. “We think our company really embodies the spirit of the Early Stage Company award. We hope to be able to make more announcements in 2015 about big-name clients and new products that will continue to help companies in the music business run more efficiently and effectively.”
In addition to running the day-to-day operations at Kalatech, Wegusen will also serve as a speaker and mentor for the startups selected for the Nashville Entrepreneur Center’s Project Music program, a 14-week program that began Jan. 18.
