About this event

An accomplished serial entrepreneur and Angel investor, John Miller has founded or acquired several companies that he massively increased the revenue for before selling. John has been involved with six startups through the ultimate sale in his 28 years in business. He founded his first company Ultimate Prospecting Services “UPS” in 1988 at age 26. Starting with only an idea in the automotive business, he built and sold ‘UPS” in 7 years to a billion dollar company. Within six months of selling “UPS” John started IDEX Dental Sciences. Within just 12 months IDEX had distribution of his tooth whitening products in over 80 countries. He sold out to his partner in just over a year. John immediately bought part of KeyTrak, a company in Atlanta and in 30 months as VP of Sales, took the company from $4,000,000 in annual sales to over $20,000,000 in annual sales and in December of 1999 sold the company for $30,000,000. And, again within 6 months of selling out of KeyTrak, John started his next business @utoRevenue. Within 5 years John grew @utoRevenue from an idea to a $12,000,000 sale to Dominion Enterprises in Norfolk VA. While running @utoRevenue, John also was involved with CoinData, LLC. as the lead/majority investor and Advisor. John is now venturing into other businesses including automotive focused technologies and early childhood education.
