Davis Roots: Where are they now?

By
From page A14 | December 15, 2013 |

Davis Roots will host a series of free talks led by guest speakers, titled “Where Are They Now?” beginning Jan. 10. The lectures will run from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Davis Roots’ office in the Hunt-Boyer Mansion, 604 Second St. in downtown Davis.

At each talk, a Davis- or Sacramento-based entrepreneur will detail his own journey to success and give tips to entrepreneurs both hopeful and established on how they can take their companies to the next level.
Chris Soderquist, president and CEO of Octus Energy, kicks things off Jan. 10. He has more than 20 years experience founding, managing, advising, capitalizing and selling companies in the clean tech, high-tech, professional services and private equity industries.
On Feb. 7, Ken Ouimet — co-founder and chief executive officer of ShoppingScout, a grocery price comparison web and mobile app — will speak. His previous company, Khimetrics, was awarded numerous U.S. patents relating to promotions, pricing and the optimization of enterprise planning models.

Ouimet and his brother are credited with launching the retail price optimization industry.
KlickNation founder Mark Otero is slated to speak March 14. After acquisition by EA in 2011, KlickNation was renamed BioWare Sacramento and later, Capital Games. Otero is a member of the Next Economy Leadership Group in Sacramento.
On April 4, Eric Ullrich will talk. Ullrich is the co-founder of Hacker Lab, which organizes hackathons in the Sacramento area and provides coworking space for entrepreneurs to work in. He is also a director at SARTA VentureStart.
