Matthew was on the panel of business and pitch coaches at the 2014 Austin Education Startup Weekend. I was impressed with the amount of spot-on information and advice Matthew was sharing with our team. It was clear that such knowledge comes from actual life experience and the success of managing numerous companies. Matthew’s feedback ensured that our team’s pitch was structured for success as it made the pitch much more persuasive and strengthened our business model. I found Matthew’s approach very professional and encouraging due to his ability to understand the product in great detail and the challenges at stake. His way of communication is very effective as it carries a large amount of valuable information in a very short period of time which is critical for successful sales and marketing campaigns for any revenue driven business or company.
