Grip® Innovations is one of 12 companies chosen to present at this years’ conference on December 11, 2008 at the Four Seasons Resort.
 
“We are honored to participate in this year’s Invest Southwest Conference, which has grown to be a launching pad for great companies in the Southwest,” said David Saar, President and CEO, Grip® Innovations. “This is a tremendous opportunity to invite the investment community to share in our vision to transform the professional audio-visual industry with our software networking products. The industry is still stuck using antiquated technology that drives up costs and restricts operational efficiencies, and we are committed to moving it into the 21st century.”  
 
Using the power of networking technology, Grip® Innovations has designed a 21st century solution for the professional AV industry that addresses the core problems of operational inefficiency, control limitations and single-purpose products. The software developed by Grip Innovations runs on standard PCs, MACs, and specialized network hardware to create a future proof, pay-as-you-grow Pro AV system that solves these core problems, not just for audio, but for all media types used in the venue.
