    I have started and sold 4 companies. In 2 cases I had deep pocketed investors that backed me and in 2 cases I bootstrapped the business with no outside investment.

Matt is super sharp and really understands how to build a company.

Matt is super sharp and really understands how to build a company. I've had the opportunity to really dive in on sales strategy, identifying growth opportunities, and the day-to-day nuances of managing people. His energy is contagious and he's born to motivate those around him. His depth of knowledge and what seems like a very natural ability to train and elevate those around him is rare. He's awesome all around. It's always a blast working with him
