This is Derek Miller Speaking on Business. Utah’s software is changing the world and one of those companies is Canopy, a fast-growing startup that builds state-of-the-art cloud-based programs used by thousands of accounting professionals nationwide. CEO Davis Bell is here to discuss his company and its work environment.


I’ve been working in software for over a decade, but I’ve never been a part of a company as special as Canopy. Our mission is to empower accountants to be successful and provide our employees with an amazing place to work. 

What makes both possible is our incredible team, people who live our values and focus on the company’s mission to delight our customers with the very best products and service. Diversity, inclusion, and belonging are central to Canopy’s business strategy. Our executive team is 44% female, as are 33% of our product and engineering teams. Bringing different life experiences forward enables us to spot and solve problems quickly.

We’re the first tech company that many of our employees have worked at – we believe talent is everywhere and don’t require applicants to have technology experience. If you’d like to learn more, or to join our team, visit


Canopy recently raised $35 million, enabling the firm to continue to expand and meet customer demand. Their modern, easy-to-use software cuts out accounting firm busywork, improves the client experience, and helps firms stay organized and operating efficiently.
