Matthew Goldstein is a principal for True Capital, a specialist alternative asset manager focusing solely on the retail and consumer sector. He specializes in placing senior executives at VC and PE-backed technology companies. He joined True from Korn/Ferry International, where he was a member of their Global Technology and Financial Officer practices, focusing on critical engagements for public and private software, SaaS, consumer internet and biotechnology companies. Prior to Korn/Ferry, Matthew was the Vice President of Corporate Development for CustomMade.com, a venture-backed online marketplace for custom goods. Matthew has over 12 years of search, business development and marketing experience for high-growth technology companies across the US and Europe.
Matthew has over nine years of business development, sales, and executive search experience. Prior to joining CustomMade, he was Executive Search consultant at the global recruiting firm, J. Robert Scott, where he successfully conducted multiple senior-level searches for a range of venture-backed portfolio companies. Previously, as the former Director of Business Development for w3, Matthew was instrumental in the creation and monetization of Vivastreet, the third largest classified website in the world.
From early stage technology companies to larger corporations and non-profit orgnizations, Matthew succeeds in finding the talent, resources, and partnerships necessary to propel organizations forward. As a networker (from birth), executive search consultant and bilingual (German) “utility” executive, he simply gets things done…and if he can’t, he’ll connect you with the person who can.
Matthew completed his undergraduate studies in Economics at Wesleyan University. He also holds an MBA from the Carroll School of Management at Boston College, where he graduated with high honors. He speaks fluent German and is a proud (and thankful) cancer survivor.
