KravTek's $10 million gambit

In what they acknowledge is a 'race against time', Nashville-based KravTek Media hopes that within 60 days the company can show potential investors and customers its latest prototype technology for seamlessly integrating content delivery for in-home digital devices. The speed, security, fidelity and wirelessness of KravTek's device could be the kind of breakthrough or disruptive technology that spawns an economic wave, or at least a major ripple.

Next up: Recruiting up to $10 million in equity capital. The fledgling venture faces the customary long odds, but could become the kind of startup Nashville needs to strengthen its standing in entertainment, communications and media.
