Mr. David Miller is the Founder of Conjecta. He serves as Advisor at Scala Computing. He previously co-founded and served as a Board Member at AvidXchange. A North Carolina native, David's first computer was an Apple II+ which he used to learn programming (in BASIC and machine language) and then went on to attend the University of Chicago before joining Merrill Lynch. When Netscape went public in 1995, David realized he was in the wrong business and returned to his programming roots, launching his first internet startup, E|Calendar, in New York's Silicon Alley. David went on to co-found AvidXchange in 2000, where he was President and managed all aspects of the company's products and strategy before leaving day-to-day management in early 2011. Currently, David maintains his Board role at AvidXchange, is a mentor, coach, and advisor to early-and growth-stage software companies, and writes the Software Startup Guy blog.
