Anshuman Sharma
They're my friends  •  Serial entrepreneur skilled at R&D, technology, strategy, partnerships, customer development.
I admire Garrett's tenacious attitude and commitment to pursuing something that allows him to marry his interest and passion for racket spor ... ts to a venture opportunity in the form of MatchOn. He's been able to navigate through some significant hurdles earlier on and I eagerly look forwarded to what comes next.
Nick Sapia
We worked together  •  Director, Digital Commerce at Alps & Meters. Consultant at Nomad Financial. Previously, Cofounder at Harvard grad.
Garrett is a fantastic member of the Boston entrepreneur community - he is sharp, easy to get along with and is an effective leader and moti ... vator. He is fully committed to his vision to change the recreational sports space with MatchOn, and I was proud to have worked with him on this project for the past year. Garrett will bring a wealth of valuable insight to the FD community and is a great connector to have in any group.

They're my advisor  •  Director of Advancement, Tenacity and President, H. R. Gates.
He gained good experience working in an established business where he was given responsibility for starting a new business within the compan ... y. He is a self-starter, very resourceful, comfortable in an uncertain environment, persistent and very driven by a vision of what is possible. He is smart, thoughtful, a hard worker, seeks other's opinions and advice, and willing to switch gears when he gains new insights.
