I’m Matt Mireles. This is my blog.
I’m a entrepreneur. In 2008, I co-founded SpeakerText, a hybrid man-machine data entry service powered by 45,000 people across the globe. As CEO of SpeakerText, I raised $1.1M from Google Ventures and sold the company to CloudFactory in 2012.
My pre-Silicon Valley past is colorful. I graduated from Columbia University with honors, even though I dropped out of UC Berkeley twice. After Berkeley, I fought forest fires on a hotshot crew in Alaska. While at Columbia, I worked my way through college as a 911 paramedic in the South Bronx. After Columbia, I worked as a reporter for the New York Times.
Now I am the co-founder of a stealth robotics company.
I have been very fortunate in life. But it’s always a struggle. I am still in the ring.
