An operator turned investor, Matt Cohen started Ripple Ventures in 2018 to bring his “operator-first” mindset to the early stage investing world. With his first investment in Turnstyle Solutions, he helped bring the company from idea in 2012 to exit in 2017 by being more than just a name on the cap table. Through his hands-on operations, strategy, and business development guidance, the company sold to Yelp! in 2017. Afterwards, Matt went on to Street Contxt, a global communication platform for the institutional financial community, to help scale their enterprise sales team. Matt also runs “The Tank,” an incubator space that helps connect Founders to the advisors and mentors they need to bring their ideas to life.
