WHY ME?Who is Matt Ward?
I help founders and businesses change the world for the better with experienced growth, strategy, marketing, and fundraising tactics to reach larger audiences, increase revenues, improve business models & processes, and make a bigger impact with their efforts.
By bringing years of experience (and painful lessons learned) building & exiting companies and helping others do the same, I help companies (from scrappy upstarts to the Fortune 500) take their business to the next level.
If you’re building something meaningful in the world and your business needs a proven combination of multi-industry experience and outside-the-box thinking to help strategically scaling your company, we should work together.
NEED HELP?Your future is bigger and brighter than you think
STARTUPSBecause it takes experience going from start to scale
From building & launching your product, acquiring customers, and incorporating to fundraising, team building, and tactics to scale, it’s hard building a successful startup.
SMEs & CORPORATESBecause innovation is hard, but a must in today’s competitive business landscape
Inject an innovative, startup-oriented business methodology to future-proof your organization and align for long-term, sustainable growth and success.
Transform your business and accelerate your growth with a proven entrepreneurial track record of uniquely future-oriented, outside the box thinking.
BUSINESS LEADERSBecause as founder or CEO you are completely alone with your struggles
With so much to do, so much stress and everything falling on your shoulders, you are understandably overwhelmed and need someone to talk to. But your friends & family can’t relate, you can’t talk openly with investors or employees, you don’t trust opening up to other founders and your spouse/partner would freak out if they knew how tenuous the business was.
STARTUP & BUSINESS COACHINGFrequently Asked Questions
I have never met a startup or business I couldn’t help with aligning strategy and marketing to achieve faster, more scalable growth (nearly always without paid ads).
There are innumerable ways to grow a business and increase revenues, everything from acquiring more customers and reducing churn to tapping into additional revenue streams and improving your upsells and LTV.
And the strategy and best approach all depends on you and your unique business.
So, let’s work together to craft your tailored growth plan.
In addition to a deep background in ecommerce & CPG, media & podcasting, B2B SaaS, consumer and climate tech, I work with numerous startups & companies in retail, B2B, healthtech, and Fintech/blockchain sectors (from early-stage to at-scale corporates) with services such as:
- Development of Growth Marketing Plans
- Strategic Business Development & Planning
- Valuation & Fundraising Strategy
- Leadership & Founder Coaching
- Company Branding & Positioning
- Business Model Innovation & Iteration
If you have to ask, you already know. Here’s an in-depth article on the topic and why CEOs (and especially startup founders) should absolutely have a business coach, at least those interested in growing faster, building bigger and avoiding the common pitfalls of startups & leadership like burnout, overwhelm and failure to scale.
In summary: “If you’ve got a dream and it doesn’t require a team, you probably aren’t dreaming big enough!”
Thanks to working with and interviewing hundreds of VCs and angel investors and making several investments myself, I know exactly what to put (and not put) in your pitch deck and presentation. Let’s refine your pitch together and create your killer pitch deck that investors & VCs can’t ignore.
NOTE: This is also available as a done-for-you service as well if you prefer.
Rather do this yourself and practice later with me? That’s fine too. Here’s a free guide to help you get started.
Yes, although traditional business plans are a bit outdated in my opinion.
Instead, together we’ll craft your tailored business one-pager outlining all critical aspects of your business & marketing strategy and your business’ roadmap.
In a sense, we cut to the core of what it takes to build your company into something great – all in one page.

Business Coaching Clients:
If we decide to work together, I usually like to have a minimum commitment with coachees because:
- I only want to work with founders & CEOs who are serious about success and the process.
- It typically takes a little while to hit our stride and for you to truly see just how impactful the sessions and changes can be.
If you are willing to commit to building something great and putting in the work to make it happen, I am here to help!

Strategic Consulting Clients:
You need help, I deliver. Give me your goals and requirements and get done-for-you, proven help on everything from crafting pitch decks and marketing funnels to developing business and growth marketing plans to fuel your business’ future success.
My fees depend on the type of company I’m working with and the capacity at which I’m retained. That is why it is definitely worth reaching out. We can almost always find a solution that fits your company’s stage of development and needs and helps you hit your ambitious business goals.
And fees are pretty relative when we’re able to 10x your growth & results – especially when it leads to you working less in the process.
