Now he's the founder and CEO of American Solar, a fast-growing company that enables homeowners to easily, quickly & affordably participate in the solar energy revolution. He is also an insightful motivational speaker.

About this event

Tired of all those entrepreneurs being called "rock stars", even though when you meet them in person it turns out they can't actually sing in tune? How embarrassing, right?

Well, this time you won't get disappointed. Not only is Meir Yaniv a serial entrepreneur, but he also was the lead vocal in his own band. He convinced Rihanna's producer at Universal to sign them on a record deal, produced three albums, and went on two tours all across the U.S. as Nickleback's warm-up act.

Meir succeeded a lot in business. He also failed a lot. With every failure, he came out wiser and humbler. Right now his company, American Solar, which is committed to covering the US with solar to accelerate the pace toward achieving net-zero emissions targets, has been growing 150% each quarter for the past year and has made achievements in sales that are truly remarkable in the industry.

Meir is a charismatic public speaker and motivator, and on stage, besides insights and inspiration, he'll also give you some tough love. Are you ready to come and be loved, Meir Yaniv's way?

All our events start and end with networking. Bringing people together, and providing value and networking opportunities, is what we do at every event. Startup Grind has helped many entrepreneurs, startups, and hyper-growth companies to scale globally.

Microsoft for Startups, a Startup Grind's global supporter, will host our event.
