Entrepreneurship Lecture Series – "The Art of the Pivot" with Chris Elmore

Chris was a millionaire at age 28…For six weeks. The first tech company he started fell like a lead balloon. He dusted himself off and with four other guys started a tech company that went from $0.00 in revenue, three product failures to thousands of employees, and a $1.4 billion-dollar value. His out-of-the-box approach of putting people first and concentrating on selling value has helped thousands.

Called a “Startup Hero” by North Carolina Business Magazine and a maverick and mold-breaker by SouthPark Magazine, Chris has written eight books and is a Professor of Entrepreneurship and Innovation at UNC – Charlotte and Queens University of Charlotte. Chris serves on the board of four startups and as a strategic advisor to Kingsmen Software Products. Chris travels the country speaking on the topics of startup success, innovation, entrepreneurship, sales, technology, and automation.

Chris was among the first employees of AvidXchange. Founded in 2000, AvidXchange is a business unicorn, a privately held company valued at +$1, and is the 9th largest fintech company in the country with 1400+ employees.

Join us as Chris shares his insights and expertise as a successful entrepreneur. There are many lessons learned along the way, and Chris is ready and willing to share what he's learned.
