Matt Ward: Startup Coach & Business Consultant for Growth & Strategy

STARTUPSBecause fundraising is hard and you have better things to do

The average startup fundraise takes 4-6 months, assuming the company can even close the round. That’s a lot time that could have been spent building your business, improving your product and acquiring customers. Let’s shorten that process so you can get back to work faster.

INVESTORSBecause finding promising startups to invest in is hard

Venture capital and angel investing are one of the best performing asset classes. But getting involved in startup investing isn’t easy, especially find the right companies to invest in.

Matt demonstrated a remarkable talent for innovating new areas of potential expansion, implementing digital marketing and growth strategies and automated systems, creating or helping to curate highly valuable content, and pursuing every avenue possible to make our business succeed.

After working with Matt for almost 2 years, I can definitely say having him on my team and his insight and perspective into new and unique growth strategies and business models was incredibly valuable for JudoLaunch. I highly recommend working with him, either as an advisor or consultant.

Matt’s been super helpful the past 2.5 years as we’ve struggled to grow AiHello. Between the business, product and marketing help and advice and his expertise and connections/introductions in the Amazon space, we’d never have gotten to where we are at today without him. I highly recommend working with him.
