Render Capital Invests $250,000 Into Resonate Recordings; Will Help Local Company Create Software to Benefit Companies Around the World

PRESS RELEASE · Louisville KY, USA ·

Render Capital, a $15 million regional fund focused on providing early-stage risk capital for entrepreneurs in Louisville and Southern Indiana, today announced a $250,000 investment into Louisville-based startup Resonate Recordings, which will help the podcast production service company develop additional software to make podcasting easier for people and companies around the world.

Resonate Recordings offers access to podcasting production, editing, launching and distribution tools, as well as a professional podcasting team, to help clients create quality recordings that represent their unique creative expression. They have worked with more than 10 podcasts that have hit number 1, which has helped them grow their client base around the world.

“We believe the barrier to entry for new podcasters is way too high,” said Jacob Bozarth, Co-founder and CEO of Resonate Recordings. “With Render Capital’s investment, we can further develop how we go about making easier and affordable podcasting tools available to anyone who has something to say.”

The investment from Render Capital will be instrumental in helping Resonate Recordings build additional software offerings, such as their iOS app, during the first half of 2021. They also plan to continue investing in product development and service enhancements for their enterprise and professional offerings, many of which will be released throughout this spring.

“We are thrilled to be able to support such a creative local company like Resonate Recordings, which is providing innovative services for the podcasting world,” said TJ Abood, Partner at Render Capital. “We believe their team, products and services are poised to have a global impact, making all aspects of podcasting easier for their customers and we are excited to see them grow.”

Since its founding in 2014, Resonate Recordings has grown through its collaborations with notable podcasts such as CounterClock, To Live and Die in LA, Culpable, Sworn, and Up & Vanished, all of which have been ranked as #1 Shows on Apple Podcasts. Today, Resonate drives traffic by the consistent publishing of podcast resources via their blog, weekly newsletter (Podcast Pro Weekly), social media, a growing affiliate network and SEO strategy. They additionally plan to further grow their podcast-specific software tools, such as Resonate Recorder and Resonate Hosting, which were released in 2020.
