At Smartvid.io we’re united by a common goal—building a photo and video management platform that leverages machine learning to solve industrial-grade problems. Our vision is simple to explain but hard to do. To execute on this concept, we’ve convened an experienced team of enterprise software engineers, machine learning specialists, and account managers.
Solving complex problems in easy-to-use ways is in our background. The founding team has worked together in various software companies for over 15 years, helping to change the way people work. Most recently, the team started Vela Systems which pioneered the use of mobile technology in the AEC industry (architecture, engineering and construction), growing to thousands of deployments all over the world before being acquired by Autodesk (now known as BIM360 Field).
Tim is a serial entrepreneur & CEO with >25 years of software industry experience.

Tim was mostly recently CEO of Sample6 and CEO of Vela Systems, a Converge Venture Partners portfolio company in field management software company in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction industry, that was acquired by Autodesk (ADSK) in June 2012.
