Matt Harris joined Bain Capital Ventures in 2012, to lead the NYC office and focus on business services companies, with a particular interest in financial services. Most recently, Matt co-founded and ran Village Ventures, where he focused on the same sectors and invested in such companies as BlueTarp, Consumer United, Dwolla, iSend, On Deck Capital, Simple, TxVia and Zipmark. Earlier in his career, Matt worked at Bain Capital in the private equity group.
Matt holds a degree in Political Economy from Williams College. He was the Captain of the Williams College Rugby Club for his junior and senior year, which as you can imagine consumed nearly all of his spare time.
Outside of work, Matt is delighted to spend time with his wife, Jessica, and their two children. He is the Chairman of the Board of the Williamstown Theatre Festival, a regional theater associated with Williams College. Matt is obsessed with military history, and some day will write a book connecting the strategy and tactics of insurgency with what he has learned about entrepreneurship.
