Matt Greenfield chairs the board of Engrade, he is a founder of Stonework Capital, an ethically oriented hedge fund based in New York City, and he serves as an advisor to University Ventures, the NewSchool Ventures Seed Fund, and the College Board.

He previously helped start three technology businesses, including Rethink Autism, DB Software (acquired by Cadre Software and now part of CA), and Synernetics (acquired by 3Com), and worked as an associate at ABS Ventures. In addition to Synernetics, his successful angel investments include Wireless Generation (acquired by News Corp.), Atricure (NASDAQ:ATRC), and Wellfleet (merged with Synoptics to form Bay Networks and then acquired by Nortel).

Matt received his B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. in English from Yale University, where he won five academic prizes and fellowships from the Mellon and Whiting Foundations and served on the editorial board of the Yale Journal of Law and the Humanities.

He taught at Bowdoin College, where he served on the committee overseeing admissions, and the City University of New York, where he served on a college curriculum committee, helped launch an interdisciplinary learning community program for first-year students, taught in the teacher preparation program, and taught graduate classes in literature to teachers from the New York City public schools. He helped design and launch Blackwell’s Literature Compass online journal and the associated blog and co-edited the Shakespeare section, he co-edited Edmund Spenser: Essays on Culture and Allegory, and he has published in such journals as the Paris Review, Raritan, Tikkun, PMLA, Shakespeare Quarterly, and English Literary Renaissance.

Presenting Companies:

DeansList's software platform manages school-wide behavior, character education and family communication programs.  These programs, (core components at networks like KIPP and Achievement First), address critical social-emotional issues and promote the development of positive character traits like grit and resourcefulness.  DeansList makes collecting relevant data (much more than just grades) easy for teachers, and automatically disseminates important information via e-mail digests and text message alerts, ensuring that no students fall through the cracks.

Cognotion is developing a suite of learning solutions that are optimized for the unique needs of young adults, especially focusing on the growing issue of unemployment and underemployment both in the US and abroad. 

Campus Job connects students with part-time jobs during school -- from Campus Rep roles to bartending gigs to freelancing opportunities. Businesses can post a job for free, and students can browse through jobs and apply for free, as well.
