Matthew Smith is listed as one of the 100 most influential and impactful people in the Nordics in 2017. Having been through several investment rounds both as a VC and founder, he has realised that every investment is equally reliant on good investors as it is on good startups.
Smith is a part of Angel Chalenge, a startup designed to help other startups meet investors. There is an imbalance in most startup ecosystems, therefore Smith and Angel Challenge has a mission to introduce, educate and inspire first-time Startup Investors to the world of startup investing. There are countless initiatives geared for making startups succeed and become investor ready, but very little emphasis or support towards making investors ready. Through Angel Challenge Smith hopes to change this.
Smith has a deep understanding of how to take a startup to the next level, and is here at Start Forum to inspire others to take the next step in forming a startup.
