Matt Cohler grew up in his hometown, and upon matriculation, he moved to New Haven, Connecticut in order to attend Yale University and study music theory, computer science and finance. Even though he was one of the smartest and most diligent students, it took him about six years to graduate, because he had a lot of other interests and had many job opportunities while still at the university. Therefore, he took a year off from college to pursue a career as a musician. He came back, but then took another year off because he was invited to join AsiaInfo Holdings, Inc., a company responsible for building China’s Internet infrastructure. After he graduated in 2001, he realized that he wanted to be a venture capitalist in Silicon Valley, so he moved there and started working as a consultant at McKinsey and Company in order to make professional connections and get into the venture capital business. This marked the beginning of an increase of his net worth.
His mission was accomplished after he met with Reid Hoffman, one of the most prosperous people in the business. As a result of this collaboration, Matt started working for Reid on many of his projects, and eventually got a job at the startup LinkedIn, as one of the first employees there. He made great progress quickly after being hired, so he became Vice President and General Manager at the firm. Soon, other important people in the business noticed his talent and vigor, so he began getting a lot of lucrative offers. He accepted an invitation to join Facebook, also as one of its first employees, and became Vice-President of Product Management, which added a considerable amount to his net worth.
To speak further about his career, Matt left Facebook in 2008 to move to the Benchmark company, and in no time he became General Partner and the youngest person to have this title at the company. While working there, Matt collaborated and invested in many famous firms and projects such as DropBox, Instagram, Research Gate among others. Currently, beside his job at Benchmark, he is also working as Mark Zuckerberg’s special advisor, and is on managing boards of Tinder, Instagram, Asana and several others. His net worth is certainly rising.
Thanks to his great success in the venture capital business, he made it to the Forbes Midas List of top technology investors as early as 2012.
Speaking about his personal life, Matt Cohler is married to Pia Cohler.
