Harrison and Nakkeeran met through Indie Worldwide and decided to team up building projects for the entertainment industry.
In a few short months First Act Technologies has worked on websites for music festivals, launched an NFT for Rob Gronkowski, and built digital experiences for artists across America.
All that despite being separated by nearly a 12 hour time zone difference.
Harrison has worked in the music and entertainment industry his entire career and hosts a podcast that explores the behind-the-scenes of the industry.
Nakkeeran, meanwhile, is a software engineer and manages a team of freelance engineers in India. We previously interviewed Nakkeeran on the Indie Worldwide podcast about his initiative to provide free websites for charities around the world.
Looking forward to whatever they build next!
