Matt is a former law student who left school to work. In 2019, he left his job to study for an Investment Specialist Certification and achieved it after a few months. However, COVID-19 brought a recession and a year of unemployment. In November 2020, he was hired by Carta and learned about Private Equity and Stock Plan Administration. After passing the ECA (CEP Level I) in just six months, he developed a Prep course to help colleagues achieve certification. He left his role as a Support Analyst to work as an outside Consultant and found AK1 Equity Management, where he helps people passionate about Equity learn Stock Plan Administration and work with Consulting Firms.
