About Matt Bauer:

Matt Bauer is the founder of Pedal Brain which provided a fully integrated hardware/software solution for cyclists from recreational riders to those in the ProTour. Over the four years at Pedal Brain, he completed a number of industry partnerships and raised over $1.2m in funding. Pedal Brain didn’t ultimately succeed though Bauer is taking his experiences into a new venture - Bauer Measurement.

A Collection Of Funding Data Points And Their Analysis:

There’s always points of data to be collected from an experiment irrespective of the outcome. Over the past four years I conducted such an experiment called Pedal Brain. It didn’t succeed. It has, however, provided me a significant amount of data regarding funding. I plan to share what I consider the key data points during this talk, my analysis of them and what it means for my next venture. This talk will be about specifics with focus on funding instruments, importance of geography, and the necessary actions to close a deal. Anyone fundraising or considering it at some point will benefit from the data points I collected during Pedal Brain.
