Mat joined the Octopus Ventures Deep Tech team in 2022, off the back of 14 years of experience founding and leading teams in Venture-backed businesses, ranging from garage operations through to international scale-ups. As a bona fide geek who reads science journals for fun, Mat is looking to back the visionary founders creating solutions to tomorrow’s problems, today.
His relationship with Octopus Ventures started on the other side of the investor table during his time as CPO at Octopus Ventures’ portfolio company, Conversocial, ahead of their successful exit in 2021.
Outside of the office, Mat spends most of his time running around after his young daughter. During her daily naps, he still finds time to read, write and climb, however. Just not as much as he used to.
