Matt Melymuka
Co-Founder & Managing Partner

We have immense respect for the entrepreneurial journey because we know that success requires tons and tons of grit, dedication, and intensity. Those same qualities are foundational to our philosophy at PeakSpan and underpin every element of our approach. Working shoulder to shoulder with passionate entrepreneurs is truly inspiring and we work incredibly hard to drive impact and earn our seat at the table day in and day out.

Favorite Quote: Einstein famously said “I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.” I am a huge believer that intellectual curiosity is one of the most powerful traits anyone can have. No matter what your starting point is, nothing is more important than wanting to figure stuff out and being committed to getting better and better every day.


Matt has been working with growth-stage software and technology businesses his whole career and has had the privilege of working with over 30 growth-stage business software companies over the last ~15 years. Prior to co-founding PeakSpan, Matt worked at Greycroft Partners on the growth stage investment team. Prior to Greycroft, he worked at Investor Growth Capital on the B2B software team where he met Phil and Brian, and they began refining the investment strategy, approach and philosophy that underpins PeakSpan today. He started his career in investment banking as a member of the Technology, Media and Telecom group at Piper Jaffray, and was named to Crain’s New York Business’ 40 Under 40 List in 2022.

Matt graduated cum laude from Georgetown University where he majored in Finance. He has been snowboarding all his life, plays the drums, and is an avid traveler, journeying to over 30 countries with his wife, Ratavy. But these days you're more likely to find them on the Upper West Side than on a plane, where they live with their daughter Luna, and their furry son Enzo the mini golden retriever, who doubles as Luna’s bodyguard and best friend. Matt grew up just south of Boston and remains a die-hard Boston sports fan despite facing the constant, character-building struggle of living behind enemy lines as a New York City resident for the last ~15 years.
