Matt Foley

SaaS Founder and Startup Advisor in Rochester, New York

I am a startup founder building SaaS companies in the customer/consumer insights space. My companies include FocusGroupIt, QualNow and Advise.Us.

I am also the Managing Director of Startup Incubation at the non-profit startup incubator NextCorps, where I mentor over 70 startups in the Rochester, NY region.

Prior to my current ventures I was a co-founder of PluggedIN, which was acquired by Edelman in July of 2011. I then spent two years as a SVP at Edelman.

Prior to PluggedIN, I co-founded a boutique usability and user experience research firm, and was a qualitative research consultant at Harris Interactive (now Nielsen).

When I'm not working in or around startups I can be found hanging out with my wife and son, playing my guitar & bass, snowboarding or mountain/road biking.
