PAX fuses Matthew’s three professional passions: early-stage investing, entrepreneurship, and B2B sales. Prior to PAX, Matthew developed his venture capital skills with Blu Venture Investors, where he funded over 70 promising early-stage companies. Matthew’s accomplishments as an investor build on his experience as an accomplished entrepreneur. In 2005, Matthew successfully exited Segovia, the broadband satellite communications company he co-founded. In his core, Matthew still considers himself a salesman. For over a decade, Matthew consistently delivered exceptional results providing complex tech solutions to corporate and government customers. Matthew and his wife live in Darnestown, MD where they like to garden, entertain, and plan excursions around the planet. Together, they raised four sons and seven dogs, and are awaiting dozens of grandchildren. Matthew and Natalie met when they were liberal arts students at BYU.
