Matthew Kee knows the Midwest startup ecosystem.
He founded a venture capital-backed fintech startup. Then he went on to serve as the Startup Development Manager for Wisconsin’s third-largest city. From there, he co-founded an angel investor group, and has recently launched a marketing business focused on high-growth startups.
Kee’s startup story begins in 2014 when he began an entrepreneurial side project with his father. It changed the trajectory of his professional life. In entrepreneurship, he found his creativity and was energized by the “outside the box thinking where everything is on the table” he developed while building his business. It was through that experience he decided, “I want to do this for the rest of my life.”
