Matt Truman

Executive Chair and Co Founder, True Global

Matt is the Executive Chair and Co-Founder of consumer-focused investment and innovation firm True. With $1bn assets under management and its own proprietary innovation lab advising the likes of Walmart, Associated British Foods, Warner Brothers, 7-Eleven and M&S, True is one of the fastest growing firms in Europe. Following a successful corporate career at JP Morgan, Deloitte and Lehman Brothers, where he advised a collection of the world’s largest and most disruptive retailers, Matt realised he was interested in the work but not the culture of the industry. 

Following that realisation, Matt co-founded True with Paul Cocker in 2013, initially as a private investment vehicle to build and ultimately realise two successful e-commerce businesses in his spare time. True has grown into a powerful ecosystem, seeing over 4,000 businesses from 40+ nations annually, with stakes in over 50 companies. As an entrepreneur himself, Matt is passionate about creating cultural change in the investment industry and reimagining it as something fundamentally more helpful to founders, start-ups, scale-ups, and industry giants.
