Matt's founder story is as personal as they come.
Having lost his father at a young age to a heart attack, he found himself overweight and on the same path in his early twenties. Determined to make a change, he left his job as a sports agent, lost 60 pounds and realized the opportunity at hand for a quick and healthy alternative to fast food. Cashing in his life savings, the first Protein Bar was born in 2009.
Matt grew the chain to 3 cities before selling a majority interest to major private equity firm Catterton Partners in October 2013. He stepped aside from day-to-day operations in November 2014 after hiring a CEO to take his place. He then embarked on a global culinary and spiritual sabbatical. While traveling the world studying food trends, he discovered the concept of indoor vertical farming, which subsequently led him back to Chicago and FarmedHere, the leading organic indoor vertical farm. Matt's been working with FarmedHere since May to tackle one of the biggest issues of our generation: sustainable farming.
Among other accolades, Matt was the inaugural recipient of the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce’s James Tyree Emerging Business Leadership Award, Chicago Magazine "Top 100 Most Powerful Chicagoans", and is a Crain’s Chicago Business “40 Under 40” recipient. We're excited to have him take the stage onFebruary 24th!
