John Jenkins wants to bring high-tech tools to a low-tech world.
He’s the CEO of Discovery Sound Technology, a Nashville company that offers audio diagnostics and cloud analytics for … HVAC systems. That’s a sector typically lagging behind in innovation, according to Jenkins, and one ripe for change.
“It looks like a good market for our technology to grow up,” Jenkins said.
DST, as it’s called, was launched in 2009. It’s backed by 20 investors, led by well-known local angel Crom Carmichael. Through three funding rounds, the third of which should close this year, the company has raised more than $3 million, Jenkins said.
