David Miller (AB’88) is the co-founder of AvidXchange, a late-stage tech “unicorn,” where he was President and managed all aspects of the company’s products and strategy before leaving day-to-day management in early 2011. A North Carolina native, David’s first computer was an Apple II+ which he used to program in BASIC and machine language. He then went on to attend the University of Chicago before joining Merrill Lynch. When Netscape went public in 1995, David left finance and returned to his programming roots, launching his first internet startup, E|Calendar, in New York’s Silicon Alley before co-founding AvidXchange in 2000. Currently, David is an early- and growth-stage investor focused on Enterprise SaaS and FinTech, and is a mentor, coach, and consiglieri to Founders.
