Speaking History
Session Information

Matt started his investing career at Bain Capital private equity in 1995, having worked previously at Bain & Company, and attended Williams College, where he majored in political economy (with a minor in rugby). In 2000, Matt founded Village Ventures, which he ran for 12 years and where he focused on early-stage fintech investing. In 2012 he rejoined Bain Capital Ventures. Outside of work, Matt enjoys spending any free moments with his wife, Jessica, and their five children. Matt serves as the Chairman of the Board of the Williamstown Theatre Festival, a regional theater associated with Williams College. He is a board member at Endeavor, an organization leading the global movement to catalyze long-term economic growth by selecting, mentoring and accelerating the best high-impact entrepreneurs around the world. He is obsessed with military history, and some day will write a book connecting the strategy and tactics of insurgency with what he has learned about entrepreneurship.
