Keynote Speaker: Morris Miller, Serial Entrepreneur and CEO - Xenex

 

  presents

Morris Miller is an investor, lawyer, CEO, salesman, and one of the most dynamic and prolific entrepreneurs in America. He started his career fresh out of SMU Law School by launching the first company to publish Texas case law on CDROM (later sold to West Publishing). He was co-founder, CEO and president of Rackspace Hosting (NYSE:RAX), which now has more than 175,000 customers, over $1-billion in annual revenue, and a market cap of over $4-billion. Three years ago he invested in Xenex Disinfection Systems, a healthcare startup that uses patented UV light technology to disinfect hospital rooms, where he is now CEO and oversees overall business strategy and day-to-day operations. Xenex infection killing "robots" are now used in over 120 hospitals nationwide, including MD Anderson, UCLA and Stanford.

Morris is also founder of Sequel Ventures, where he invests in and acts as an advisor to numerous startup companies, such as inventables (recently profiled in The Kauffman Foundation Newsletter). He is also a shareholder and board advisor to Lafayette's own Golfballs.com.

"Eight years ago I asked Morris to spend a few days in Lafayette coaching me to become a better CEO. His insight has been invaluable to the growth of Golfballs.com. I hope that business owners and entrepreneurs come out to hear his story and advice."
