Matt Richman

Hi! I’m Matt. I’ve been interested in technology for as long as I can remember.

I think moving on from cars is the most important thing we can do to fight climate change—and that it makes life better, not worse—so I tried to launch the world’s first ebike neighborhood in NYC. It didn’t work 🙂

Before that, I worked at Stripe, where I built Stripe Atlas’s content/community program. We helped founders get in to YC, hosted dinners for entrepreneurs across the world, and published guides to building startups.

At Stripe, I also worked on Stripe Capital. I helped businesses get through COVID, tripled loan payments, and improved customer satisfaction.

Many years ago, I wrote about technology. My first essay predicted that Apple would build ARM-based Macs. Over the years, my work was featured in Fortune, The Guardian, and Time.

I’m a fan of good food, good people, and good conversation. If you want to say hi, my email address is
