Are you currently running a tech company or looking to form one? Tell us about that! is our latest "tech" project. Currently in beta, we provide a platform where investors can "back" poker players, by buying virtual "stakes" in them. We're in discussion with a number of large gambling operators here and in the US, with the view to taking this to the next stage. However, I always welcome engagement from interested parties on this project. My other passion at the moment is my newly acquired watersports business - - teaching people to wakeboard and waterski in St. Tropez on the French Riviera. 2017 was my first season there and has proved to be a great success. In early 2018, I'll be travelling to Morocco for a few months to check the suitability of setting up a second site there. Although not a "tech" company as such, I'm interested in speaking to potential investors/partners here too.

Which tech companies have you been involved with in the past?

I founded and launched the,,,,, websites.

What Matt D. is saying about this Meetup Group

Cannot recommend highly enough if you are a tech entrepreneur in the South West. Great to bounce ideas off each other, and hear of others who have gone/going through similar experiences to yourself. 5stars (out of 5).
