While having to shut down a previous startup  in the midst of the pandemic, Matt's number one priority was to give his globally distributed team a soft landing into great organizations. While doing this, he came to realize that corporations would not hire internationally because of compliance standards and foreign subsidiary requirements. A lightbulb went off, and Panther was born to solve this problem.

We cover how Panther could become the number one employer in the world, being at the center of a flow of funds, the breadth of the problem, what it is like to have product-market fit, asymmetric bets, raising money from big names, and Matt's personal story and background in debate.
