Prior to launching BizGreet in 2008, Mat previously co-founded Austin marketing communications firm Good Goliath.
In 2009, when BizGreet sought funding from the Baylor Angel Network in order to grow its business further, they had already worked with more than a dozen companies to deliver personalized web video ads and powerful ROI-tracking analytics. At the time, BizGreet's client roster included such notables as the Rick Perry for Governor Campaign, Business Bank of Texas, First Crush Tastings and The Round Rock Express baseball team, a Triple-A affiliate of the American League champion Texas Rangers.
In the last two years clients and brands demanding more creativity, more accountability, more video, and more social have been seeking out BizGreet to fill those needs.
