Rackspace co-founder Dirk Elmendorf has joined Nashville-based Splother as a strategic adviser and investor. Elmendorf joins an existing board that includes recording artist Robert Earl Keen and legal counsel Kent Marcus.
The website, named to Nashville Post’s “Tech 25 list of Middle Tennessee’s Brightest IT Ventures” and Nashville Scene’s “10 Forward Thinking Ideas Pushing Nashville, and the World, into the Future,” offers an online solution for securing sync licenses for the web, film, TV, and more. Users have access to a growing catalog of pre-cleared music across all genres, selected by A&R professionals.
“Splother is well positioned to disrupt the way music is licensed today,” says Splother CEO Dave Durocher. “Dirk’s involvement helps validate our strategy.”
