Flipside Crypto, a crypto data analytics company, has hired Matt Bridges as Chief Operating Officer.
Bridges joins the firm from Accenture, where he served as Managing Director for the Boston studio and headed its Digital Products business. Prior to that, he was TO at Intrepid, a mobile design and development firm that was acquired by Accenture in 2017. Before that, he worked with American inventor and futurist Ray Kurzweil and developed technology using pattern recognition, AI, and natural language processing
In his new role at Flipside, Bridges will collaborate with other members of the executive team to ensure operational excellence, compliance, and strategic growth across the organization.
"Matt brings to us a wealth of industry knowledge, a recognized passion for blockchain innovation, and an impressive track record of growing organizations at both the startup and institutional level," said Dave Balter, CEO of Flipside Crypto. "I am thrilled to see him join our team and look forward to more successes for Flipside under his leadership."
Founded in 2017, Flipside Crypto enables crypto projects to grow their businesses by monitoring project health, tracking customer behaviors, and providing insights into how activities impact stakeholders and price.
In September, it raised $7.1 million in a Series Seed Prime round led by Galaxy Digital Ventures, bringing its total funding to $11.6 million to date. Flipside Crypto said that it plans to use the funding to expand its team and augment its data science and analytics capabilities designed to help cryptocurrency organizations grow.
"My position at Accenture afforded me the opportunity to see how some of the largest companies in the world approach technology adoption," said Bridges. "I was surprised to see how much of an impact blockchain was making not only in the finance industry but everywhere, from retail to insurance to logistics. As I was looking for opportunities to re-enter the startup world, I was fascinated by Flipside's unique position to help elevate blockchain businesses to new standards. Growing blockchains need crucial insights to help them make the right decisions as they mature into thriving businesses."
