Matthew has been serving stars since his early years. At university, it was Phil Collins — his first customer when working room service for a five-star hotel — and now, those stars are entrepreneurs and their companies that Telstra Ventures helps scale into industry power players. In fact, Matthew has worked with over 200 private equity-backed companies, including numerous acquisitions and IPOs.

Originally from Germany, Matthew moved to Sydney when he was 11 and hasn’t sat still since — having visited 60 counties to-date, which included walking with lions in Africa, shark diving in Vanuatu, and walking the Great Wall of China.
