Description

StartupSac Happy Hour returns with another impressive guest entrepreneur ready to answer your startup, innovation, and entrepreneurial questions. Our guest this month is Ken Ouimet, founder and CEO of Davis-based Engage3. Ken and his brother Tim founded Engage3 in 2008 to revolutionize retail through big data and advanced analytics to uncover the consumers’s intent-to-buy as the foundation for offer optimization. Last summer, the company closed on a $12-million round of Series B financing.

So start prepping your questions now and make sure you join us for an engaging evening where you can learn and get direct insight and feedback as well as enjoy the supportive, collaborative Sacramento startup community.


More About Our AMA Guest:

Ken Ouimet, Engage3


Ken Ouimet is the CEO and Founder of Engage3 and is credited with creating the retail revenue management and price optimization market. His first company, Khimetrics, led the industry for almost a decade before being successfully acquired by SAP in 2006. Engage3 is once again pioneering the next big thing in retail business models in the era.

Ken literally grew up in the business starting as a 7 year-old auditing in-store prices while working for his parent’s business, Comparative Prices International. Ken earned a BS in Chemical Engineering from UC Davis and went on to UC Santa Barbara to pursue his PhD work in Chemical Engineering and Theoretical Physics. While studying Statistical Physics he realized he could utilize these same principles to model retail markets and optimize retail pricing decisions. With his unique perspective and insight, Ken applied statistical physics to create an entirely new approach. Ken served on the Board of Directors of Revionics between 2007-2011 and as Chief Scientist & VP of Innovations at SAP AG between 2006-2007.
