Chris Elmore

Charlotte, NC


For a whopping six weeks, at age 28, Chris was a millionaire. His first tech company crashed and burned in a blink of an eye. This didn’t stop Chris or his four partners; quickly reinventing themselves and launching a new company in hopes of success. Chris and his counterparts went thru 3 failed product launches but finally figured things out. Chris’ company, AvidXchange, is flourishing to say the least; with $1.4 billion, is the 9th largest finch company in the country and over 1400 employees.

Dedicated to personal growth and unending seeker of knowledge, Chris loves to return that knowledge to others. Author of 8 books and currently the Professor of Entrepreneurship and Innovation at UNC – Charlotte and Queens University of Charlotte.

North Carolina Business Magazine called Chris a “Startup Hero” and noted as “a maverick and mold breaker” by SouthPark Magazine. Chris not only serves on the board of four startups, he’s the strategic advisor to Kingsmen Software Products.

Lake Wylie, S.C. is where Chris, his wife and four children call home.
