Matt Berther is six years old. Very advanced for his age intellectually and physically, young Matthew has spent most of his childhood to date remotely leading the sales team for aol.com, where his chief and most well-known initiative has been to bring that company back to its roots – mailing free trial CDs to potential customers. He instills in his team the ABC’s of technology sales: Always Bring Candy. Matt sold his first technology venture in 2010, a social media super-pivot start-up bootstrap web 3.0 buzzword aggregator, making him the youngest billionaire in Silicon Valley and also in Idaho’s Treasure Valley, where he recently moved and has been referred to by residents as an “out-of-state carpetbagger.”
When not fighting the good fight for the 1990’s internet titan, Matt enjoys the Idaho outdoors, tasting Idaho wines, and spending time with his wife and three children, most of whom are significantly his senior.
