He went from being a high school teacher to being successful on Dragon’s Den. Now his company Jamstack is changing how artists and fans create, collaborate and consume music.

When Chris Prendergast invented the prototype of the Jamstack, he was finding a solution to a very real problem for electric guitarists: “how can I play my guitar anywhere, anytime, without using a mountain of amps and gear?” The answer was a small-sized amp that used the most cutting-edge tech to pack in a huge sound, and the only amp in the world that attaches to the body of the guitar.

The idea was a big hit. Chris, who had been working as a high school coding teacher, found himself shaking hands on Dragon’s Den and getting his product, the Jamstack 1, to market and generating over $2 million in sales.

Using direct feedback from Jamstack customers, and incorporating Jamstack Inc’s mission: to make playing, creating, and consuming music enticing, accessible, and social, the second generation product, the Jamstack 2, is recognized as the world’s smallest true modelling amp with the best bluetooth speaker for its size and weight, the only amp to feature both a wireless transmitter and receiver so you beam into or out of your amplifier, and the most versatile product that can be moved seamlessly from your instrument to your bike to your home theatre system.

With an ecosystem of accessories, including a phone mount, wall mount, roll cage, guitar mount, instrument stand, headphones and more, the user is able to create music, listen to music, and enjoy media using the highest quality speakers that travel with them wherever they go. Using the Jamstack app and a new collaboration software that is in development, the user will be able to listen, collaborate, and share with other users in real time.

“Our mission at Jamstack is to make playing, creating, and consuming music enticing, accessible, and social. With new technology available to make these products more compelling than ever before, people are ready for an amp company that disrupts the norm, and challenges tradition.” – Chris Prendergast, CEO, Jamstack Inc.

The timing couldn’t be better. According to Guitar Centre, their guitar sales more than doubled in 2020, and Sweetwater saw music gear propel to $1 Billion in annual revenue for the first time in their 42 year history. There has never been a better time to invest in music hardware & software, and Jamstack is in a unique position to get fans and funders in on the ground floor.

To help bring the Jamstack 2 to market, Jamstack Inc is running an equity crowdfunding campaign on FrontFundr, which opens the doors for any Canadian to become a shareholder in Jamstack Inc. Details of the offering can be found in the Offering Document at frontfundr.com/jamstack.
