Josh Hannah

Josh is currently a General Partner at Matrix Partners. He is known as one of the co-founders of Betfair.com, the first online marketplace for sports betting. Josh played a myriad of roles while at the company, from serving as interim CEO during the early start-up years, to assisting in the building a team of more than 1,000 employees around the globe.

After Betfair, Josh purchased, restructured, and helped grow Web 1.0 how-to directory, eHow, by outsourcing content creation to the community and employing then-new advertising and search engine optimization techniques. Through his work, the company increased revenue and traffic 30-fold before being acquired by Demand Media in 2006 for a 400X return.

In addition to his entrepreneurial endeavors, Josh has advised several prominent companies in the U.S. and the U.K. He also served as an EIR at Benchmark Capital.
