May 21, 2020- Greenville, SC

Upstate entrepreneur and NEXT Board of Directors Chair Scott Millwood was recently featured by Upstate Business Journal to discuss his most recent venture, YesFlow.

Scott Millwood and his business partner, Michael Elliott, are not new to the startup scene in Greenville. Millwood has been working in Greenville in the tech industry since 1995, and as the current chairman of the board of directors of NEXT, he’s been intimately involved in Greenville’s startup scene for a quarter-century. He said Greenville is unique in its ability to foster companies that grow from regional to global within a short span of time.

His own experience proves that sentiment. In 2004, he and Yesflow’s co-founder Michael Elliott founded a previous company, Customer Effective, which was later acquired by Hitachi, the 38th largest company in the world.

After a successful transition to Hitachi, both Millwood and Elliott were looking to scratch that entrepreneurial itch to build something new again.

They brought on six employees to start Yesflow, all of whom they’d worked with previously, some going back decades.

“It’s like a chef opening up a new restaurant and bringing the kitchen team along from the previous one,” Millwood said. “They all know who’s going to cook what, how to deliver those dishes to the front, in a way that you just can’t replicate.”
