Matrix is pleased to share that we have added two new stellar Entrepreneurs in Residence in our West Coast office — Kevin Barenblat and Mihir Shah.
Kevin is a serial entrepreneur who brings with him a tremendous amount of experience in enterprise SaaS and consumer Internet. Most recently Kevin co-founded and served as CEO of Context Optional, a pioneering social marketing software company that introduced the industry’s first social media management system. After being acquired the company’s flagship Social Marketing Suite now forms the foundation of Adobe Social, part of Adobe’s Digital Marketing Suite.
Mihir has been a top executive and advisor to several tech companies. Most recently he was President and CEO of Tapjoy, one of the largest mobile ad platforms in the world. Prior to Tapjoy, Mihir was a Vice President and GM at Rockyou!, co-founder of social site CookEatShare.com, and served as the Vice President and General Manager at QuinStreet, the largest performance marketing firm in the US.
Kevin and Mihir will help us evaluate investments in cloud, mobile, consumer internet and ad tech categories while evaluating new business ideas of their own. Welcome to the Matrix family, Kevin and Mihir!
