The Adams Hub business incubator in downtown Carson City announced Friday it has selected Matt Westfield to serve as Entrepreneur-in-Residence there.
Westfield, who has a diverse background in business startup work and related academic positions, is expected to provide the incubator’s startup clients with dedicated access to entrepreneurial savvy from a longtime mentor. He will work closely with Adams Hub staff in offering sound counsel to clients.
“I am thrilled to be affiliated with Adams Hub, and as an entrepreneur myself believe Adams Hub is rapidly becoming an epicenter for entrepreneurs in the region,” said Westfield.
Westfield’s background includes startup work with various firms, mentoring with many others, and he also has taught entrepreneurship classes at the University of Nevada, Reno. At UNR, he was an entrepreneur in residence for the past three years. He currently owns or manages four unrelated firms, among them his third software company.
He co-founded Entrepreneurs Assembly, a Nevada non-profit, and has served as Nevada state director of the international Clean Tech Open business plan competition.
Rob Griffin, Adams Hub executive director, praised Westfield and what he brings to the Hub.
“Mr. Westfield has advised over 300 startups, many of which went on to raise significant capital and grow to profitable enterprises,” Griffin said. “We look forward to sharing his expertise and knowledge with our clients as we accelerate their growth in the community.”
