Our investment strategy is to invest in companies that we perceive to be on the cutting edge of creating major new markets in software, communications equipment, semiconductors, storage, Internet and wireless.
We approach each investment with a long-term commitment, since our goal is to build successful, independent companies - not acquisition targets. Matrix invests $10+ million over multiple rounds, with an initial investment ranging from seed amounts of $100,000-$300,000 to early-stage rounds of up to $10 million.
Chris Kelly, an Associate in the Silicon Valley office, joined Matrix Partners in 2007. He focuses on early-stage Internet and mobile companies.
Chris previously worked as a management consultant at McKinsey & Co., where he served media and telecom clients on various strategic, financial, and operational issues. Prior to McKinsey, Chris co-founded multiple web startups, including an online college textbook market and a same-day delivery service for consumer goods.
Chris graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a degree in Finance and Economics.
