"When I joined OptiSense as CEO in 2011, the company was an early-stage start up with 8 employees, performing research and development in a remote town with a vision for a Medium Voltage sensor solution, and entirely focused upon one prospect," says Prince.

"In 30 months we've transformed the company into the leading disruptive sensor technology and solution for Medium Voltage grids. We did this by raising over $16M in additional funding, filing 6 new patents, commercializing the technology into 12 unique product categories, developing a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Plano, Texas - including robotics specifically developed by the company for scale production - and signing 25 utility customers across 6 countries." Founded in 2001, OptiSense Network was a winner of $1.5 M investment by the 2007 Texas Emerging Technology Fund. OptiSense's success is now generating strong investment interest from US and International investors in Europe and China - due to the size of the global Distribution Automation market opportunity and the disruptive nature of OptiSense's patented technology.
