Everything that we see out there today started with an idea. A problem to solve. A need to be met. Anything that is built outside of that, doesn’t live long. Unless, it’s created from a dream. That’s what StageWood comes from. Tyket was born out of a dream. And dreams are the strongest reason to build something.
If you didn’t know, Stagewood was born out of the dream to help young artists have a standing chance to make it in the music industry. And this dream is a very personal one.
Our founder, Santiago Figuereo, was a pianist growing up. He spent years in the conservatory in his home country, Dominican Republic. But as every teenager does at some point, he had a decision to make. From a very young age he knew he wanted to be a doctor and help people. So when it came time to choose a career path, he had a decision to make. Would he follow his passion for music, or would he follow the path of service AND least resistance? Well, he chose the path of medicine and the rest is history, or so he thought.
You see, he knew that following his passion for music would come with many hurdles. It would definitely be hard, and maybe even impossible to create a life for himself and his family with the earnings of a musician. So he chose, like many do, the path that would serve him and those around him.
But he couldn’t get past his passion for music. That is why, after many years of practice and many accomplishments in the field of neurosurgery, he decided it was time to look back at his passion and do something he couldn’t do as a young musician, help others who at some point face the decision he faced.
That’s where StageWood comes in, and that’s its purpose. We exist to help young talent have the support and resources necessary to make it in the industry.
- From exposure through Tyket: fanbase growth, gig opportunities by connecting them with event producers, and more.
- Through support, education, representation, and connection with top industry experts through our StageWood Foundation.
- Through our StageWood Corporation, artists will have even more opportunities to share their talent in our different venues.
- An opportunity to reach the masses and become a superstar through our Tyklash competitions.
Everything we do in StageWood is created with the artists in mind, finding new ways to support them and ensure to the best of our abilities their success.
But we don’t stop there. Because we understand that living out your dream is not a luxury everyone is able to experience, and we know there are plenty of dreamers out there, we have expanded our reach to be able to help talent of other industries besides music, like sports, culinary and visual arts, among others.
Now, as we finish one of the most challenging years to date for the world as we’ve known it, we realize this is only the beginning. With an app launching Spring of 2021, a growing following base on all our social platforms, a virtual talent competition coming up, and an endless amount of talent to be helped, our founder’s dream, our dream, is only beginning to come to life. We’re proud of how far we’ve come, even in the face of adversity, and we know this is only the beginning not just for us but for the talent around the world that we’ll be helping.
So before the year ends, become part of our family. Become part of changing someone’s life. Or better yet, change your life. Share your story and your talent with us. Let us know how we can help you. Take the step to make your dream a reality.
Make 2021 the year your dream becomes a reality, like ours has.
