“The Story of SOWA Sound’s Wireless Loudspeakers

Join Villads Sørensen, the CEO and co-founder of wireless loudspeaker company SOWA Sound as he shares the story of how their entrepreneurial drive (and maybe a bit of inexperienced naivety) led them to develop a new wireless technology in the sometimes-conservative pro audio industry, despite having zero experience in the fields of acoustics or wireless transmission technologies. So how did they do it, who helped them along the way and how far have they come? Come and enjoy this fun and inspiring talk, and remember not to miss your chance to listen to the loudspeakers during EOT!
