We are very excited to have Dave Curry join us as our keynote speaker at our Spring 2017 Demo Day.  To provide a little bit of context around our excitement, we’ve put together a brief bio on Dave to share with you.


Dave is a successful entrepreneur having founded, taken public, and exited three companies for nearly $1B and has over 30 years of combined telecommunications, energy and software industry experience. Dave co-founded Demand Energy a clean energy control system company with an emphasis on distributed energy storage/resources in 2008 that was acquired in 2017 by Enel Green Power. Prior to Demand Energy he was President and CEO of World Wide Packets, a point-to-point Ethernet switch vendor to Comcast, Clearwire, and AT&T that was acquired by Ciena in 2008. 


Before World Wide Packets, he co-founded Architel, a provisioning software telecom OSS vendor to Verizon, Cable & Wireless, BT, NYNEX, and GTE that was taken public in 1996 and subsequently acquired by Nortel in 2000. In 1996, Dave was selected Canadian Entrepreneur of the Year for his leadership at Architel.


Come join us on May 3rd to hear from Dave and the CEOs of the companies graduating our current accelerator.  These CEOs have been hard at work for the past 13 weeks ironing out their business models, competitive strategies, and, of course, their pitches.
