Founder & CEO

Working to Give

Matthew Holguin is the Founder and CEO of Working to Give, who defines the success of business by how much it gives and not how much it makes.

Matt thinks it is awkward to write a bio in "third person," pretending that someone else is writing it. So he asked those who matter most to him, know him best and would be the most honest, to tell you about him....him FAMILY:
"Matt is passonate. He is relentless, inspiring, scatter brain and consumes too much protein powder. Matt is a humble leader and you don't want to be around him if you're injured because he's clumsy. He is family-loving a serial entrepreneur and loves to talk with people. Matt is never home, always traveling, lives our of a duffle bag, and when he says he's on his way or almost there it means he is still in his living room. Usually late, always smiling, always happy, never ruffled and always encouraging."
And from his youngest brother..."An awful basketball player."
