Matthew Holland is a healthcare professional turned technologist; his past career was spent working in the behavioral health field collectively for over 25 plus years in 3 different States in the western United States.
After many years working on the ground level, supervising and administrating programs across many health systems, he saw too many huge disparities in the systems he worked in and the individuals he worked for. After a time, the dream of the KnKt’d platform was born.
Through his diverse career path from the United States Air Force working for a special operations maintenance wing, to his career in healthcare, to running his company he’s gained a unique skill set and global vision. He and his team have shown that they have what it takes to succeed at all costs no matter what the circumstances, or obstacles that are in front of them and they have shown this time and time again. His non-stop commitment to his company, precision use of his funding shows that he knows what it takes in this day and age to get a start-up well past the 92% fail rate, into profitability, and all while maintaining an equity share of his company for himself and his team.
Matthew believes in helping humanity change in ways that benefit all and not just the few and does this through his thought leadership across multiple domains. He believes that being inclusive and not exclusive is the way forward for our species in all regards and respects. As well that moving society forward from being a capitalistic machine to a social good engine is the only path forward to find true balance and inclusivity in this world.
He continues to advocate for change in the collective health system on various councils and committees. He wrote on the Pulse and on The Huffington Post and now continues to write on Medium, as well as a thought leader with Transformative Tech. Talks frequently on panels and during speaking engagements about mindfulness, inner and outer awareness, the changing landscape of behavioral & physical healthcare and the new era of wellness technology. Often you can find him taking time out of his busy schedule to mentor, advise, consult, and guide other founders and teams past the many issues and pitfalls that come with running and scaling a new company.
Matthew spends his free time: writing, reading, hiking, making eclectic jewelry, practicing martial sciences, enjoying the beauty of the world around him, but most of all he loves nothing more than spending time with his children.
