Matt Quinn

Head of Growth & Finance

I am obsessed with learning, experiencing and mastering:

- The distribution, marketing and growth of new products that will change the world we live in

- The capital requirements, structures and resource allocations of the products that will build the world we live in

- The processes, operations, relationships and leadership that will shape the products set to change the world that we live in.

I've founded 2 companies (sold 1), been an engineer, a financial officer, a growth lead and a bunch of other things.

Having been involved with Techstars for 3 years now I live by #GiveFirst so please never hesitate to reach out with a legitimate question or request.

Unlocking human potential and creating jobs drives me everyday. Grilla unlocks incredible videography talent and fits it sustainably into the needs of businesses. Who could ask for a better product.
