Chris Elmore is co-founder of AvidxChange, a remarkably successful software company that has earned the rare title of an unicorn company. As a privately owned startup company, AvidxChange is now valued at over 1.45 billion dollars, earning the prestigious title. Through the process of building the company, Chris learned how to become a successful entrepreneur.

  • Find a problem and solve it
  • The bigger the problem, the bigger the impact and the bigger the profit
  • Do not pursue money, pursue making an impact
  • The more money and people you invest in a company, the more it should prosper
  • When searching for employees, find the right person with the right skills and empower them
  • Simple goals are most beneficial
  • Teach people how to think about a process differently

 

In becoming a eminent entrepreneur, focus on something you have a remarkable passion for. It should be the last thing you think about when you go to bed and the first thing you think about when you wake up in the morning. Do not give up after your first failure. Instead, learn from your mistakes and think about how you can use them to your advantage. Through it all, persistence is key.

 

After Chris spoke, students divided into four groups to discuss teamwork and work ethic. After speaking with a mentor, each group developed a scenario that demonstrated positive traits and negative traits in the workplace. Great work to everyone who came, listened and participated!
