Consider embarking on a road trip without a map – that’s akin to launching a startup without a Cap Table. The Cap Table acts as your navigational guide on the entrepreneurial journey, detailing who’s riding shotgun (investors and stakeholders), how much fuel they’ve contributed (equity), and where everyone sits in the journey. Without this financial roadmap, it’s like hitting the open road with no clear directions, risking detours, and losing sight of the strategic route to success. In essence, a Cap Table is your indispensable GPS, ensuring a smooth ride and helping you navigate the twists and turns of startup growth with confidence.

Matt is the founding Managing Director of UCAN (VentureSouth’s original group in Greenville), where he developed the operations that became VentureSouth, and under his leadership, UCAN was named a Top 10 Angel Group in the US.

Matt served two terms on the Board of Directors of the Angel Capital Association (2013-2019), and has served on numerous other corporate boards including Entegra Financial (acquired by First Citizens Bank), Cirtemo (acquired by Thorlabs) and Zylo Therapeutics.  Matt also currently serves on the Clemson University Board of Visitors, the Greenville Community Foundation Board, and as a Deacon at Downtown Presbyterian Church.  He was previously a management consultant with the Boston Consulting Group and an engineer with Eastman Chemical Company.
