Think Matt is awesome?
Vouch for them.

Evan Samek
They're my advisor  •  Co-Founder, CEO, imagilabs. Previously Writer, Freelancer, Freelancer. Cornell grad.
Matt has been a fantastic advisor and champion for the whole time I've known him. He's provided me some of the best advice on my pitch deck, ... introduced me to other influential advisors, and proactively checked-in from time to time even when I was too swamped to do so myself. Another thing I appreciate about Matt is his own personal humility and desire to learn and improve - I've just as often provided candid feedback about his projects and approaches, and they've always been productive conversations.
