Vanderbilt-related start-up selected for ‘Techstars Chicago’

TuneHatch is an online platform that uses predictive analytics to help independent music venues and artists book shows.

TuneHatch, an online platform that uses predictive analytics to help independent music venues and artists book shows — and fans find shows they’ll love — is racking up tech industry accolades as it grows.

Developed in the Launch incubator at the Wond’ry, Vanderbilt’s Innovation Center, TuneHatch has been accepted to the highly competitive fall 2023 class of “Techstars Chicago” accelerator. It recently won the Nashville Blacks in Technology pitch competition, and it is a finalist in the Nashville Entrepreneur Center’s NEXT Awards.

The company was founded by two Vanderbilt alums — Christal Hector and Nathan Youssef — and by Reece Franklin. As members of Techstars Chicago, the trio receive expert guidance as they develop on their techniques to master customer discovery, refine sales skills and secure future funding.

To fuel its growth, and upon their Techstars acceptance, TuneHatch kicked off a seed funding round. The start-up has raised $120,000 with a goal of reaching $550,000 by December 2023.
