Marvee’s founder, Heidi Culbertson has spent her career immersed in emerging technology, having begun her career in mobile technology, where her work with enterprise customers often required her to design solutions for companies adopting mobile for the first time. That led her to a focus on user experience design for mobile, which eventually led to UX consulting work.
Ms. Culbertson was drawn into Voice Technology in 2014 with the launch of the Amazon Echo as a possible solution to help an aging mother. (Read the full back story here). The realization that voice could so effectively change lives led to the founding of Marvee in early 2016. Today, Marvee is considered a leader in conversation design for all ages.
Dan Miller joined Heidi as Marvee’s co-founder in 2016, and they launched the initial Ask Marvee Skill in summer 2016. Mr. Miller has spent his career as a visionary technology entrepreneur, and is a well-known speaker, investor and advisor. Mr. Miller’s entrepreneurial drive began early with his passion for soccer, where he competed for the US and professionally. Lessons learned on the field fueled his passion for business strategy and creating high performance teams, leading to future success in founding multiple companies to successful exits. Mr. Miller is also the CFO/COO of MassCare, a healthcare practice management company, and is the Managing Director of Seedboom, a business strategy consulting firm.
