Next “Innov865 Investor Series” on September 26 features Bill Malkes, Grady Vanderhoofven

The next “Innov865 Investor Series” session will feature a conversation with Bill Malkes, Co-Founder and former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of GRIDSMART Technologies, Inc., and Grady Vanderhoofven, CEO of Three Roots Capital and Managing Partner of Meritus Capital, the lead investor in GRIDSMART.

The event is set for 6 to 8 p.m. September 26 at the Square Room behind Cafe 4 on Market Square in Downtown Knoxville. It’s another program during this year’s “Innov865 Week” celebration of entrepreneurship in the Knoxville/Oak Ridge region.

Yours truly will moderate the discussion that will focus on the launch, growth and evolution of GRIDSMART and the acquisition of the company by a $2 billion publicly-traded corporation. The discussion should provide useful insights for both aspiring entrepreneurs and investors.
