He then combined his high-tech experience with his lifelong entrepreneurial spirit to co-founded CompareNetworks in 2000. As Chief Operating Officer Matt was instrumental in raising CompareNetworksâ€™ $1,000,000 seed round despite the wariness of web-based markets in a post-bubble economy.

Matt played a critical role in the companyâ€™s recent raising of a $10 million in private equity financing.
