Areas of Expertise
I have 25 years of tech experience. I have raised money from blue-chip venture firms such as Sequoia Capital, Draper Fisher Jurvetson, and many others. I know how to build businesses that scale from scratch.
GCMatt has been a great manager to work for. He provides honest and constructive advice and feedback and empowers the people that work for him to make decisions and succeed. In addition, he brings managers together on a regular basis to share information and speak to the direction ahead. I've learned a lot from working for Matt and plan to apply the tips learned to how I work with my teams in the days ahead.
KWMatt is world class. He is a balance sheet savant, a dynamic leader, and a product visionary. The only thing more impressive than his intelligence and sophistication is his tireless dedication to executing against his mission.
