Nicole Gallub founded Pelonkey in 2012, with the mission to develop a secure platform for entertainers to manage their day to day business professionally. Graduating from the University of Richmond, Nicole dove right into the world of IT and network security; realizing her true passion while she was working overseas – music. As a DJ herself (many may know her as DJ Neekola), Nicole learned the hard way that sometimes the entertainment industry does not give its artists fair representation in the business world. On the same end, event planners need a secure system in place for booking their entertainment, holding both sides accountable. Combining her music and tech background, Nicole created Pelonkey – an entertainment marketplace that makes it easier and safer for performers to promote and run their biz, and for event planners to book top talent easily.
