Andrea Matheson

Scale Expert, Multi-Exit Entrepreneur

Andrea has always been driven by three core principles in her career: work smarter, not harder; innovate constantly; be curious about what's next.

She is a forward-thinking leader and an elite problem solver. Andrea helps companies look at problems differently, and answer complex business questions from strategy through execution faster. She has built three startups from zero to successful exit. The largest was from zero to US$175 million in 24 months on three continents.

Her track record includes startup success and senior leadership in both the public and private sectors, and Andrea has used this background to bridge the gap between big business and entrepreneurship for over two decades. She’s had the privilege to work across technology and operations functions in Canada, Europe, Hong Kong, and Australia in industries including telecommunications, healthcare, financial services, and manufacturing.

It's Andrea’s mission to use her experience to advise growing startups on change management, to help entrepreneurs identify their blind spots, and to help companies scale rapidly. She continues to be a startup mentor, advisor, and investor, and sits on the Boards of SeamlessMD, VivaVax and Prosper.

She is also passionate about helping more women close the gap to more senior leadership roles in the tech sector. You can reach out to her in my role as a Strategic Advisor to movethedial.ca.

Some fun facts about Andrea are that she’s a golf junkie, fitness lover, super-fan of the Toronto Raptors, travel enthusiast, and fanatic for high performance cars!
