Ike Kavas joined me on Accelerate OC to share his story, leadership philosophy and current company, Ephesoft, where he is the founder and CEO. It's a company he founded here in Orange County nearly 10 years ago. They have built the first document capture platform for the cloud and serve global customers in areas of automated data entry, compliance and document processing.
Before Ephesoft he was a senior technical architect and professional services manager at Kofax, a longtime technology company based here as well. Ike is a technologist through and through and has committed to becoming a great entrepreneur, CEO and people leader as well, which I greatly admire about him.
To me Ike epitomizes the modern entrepreneur and leader – he has great passion and deeply cares for all the constituents around a company – customers, employees, investors and his broader community. We discussed that during our conversation.
Ike has won awards like the High Tech Innovation Awards, a “Best Place to Work” for 2019, Top Workplace for 2018 and he was an EY Entrepreneur of the Year Finalist in 2019. Ephesoft was even in the INC 500 fastest growing companies a few years ago.
He’s a super busy guy, traveling the world for his company, so I felt fortunate to have him on Accelerate OC to share his story.
