Matthew Hidalgo


My name is Matthew Hidalgo.

I’m a 21 year old college grad from NYU—who majored in Public Policy.

Currently, I’m working on my own startup called Collie—the roommate app.

I’ll be joining Cockroach Lab’s sales team in June, as part of the Bowery Capital Sales Fellowship.

Previously, I took a semester off in the fall of 2018 to pursue a six month fellowship in Washington D.C. as a part of Twitter’s Policy team

I was born in NYC to Ecuadorian immigrant parents, and grew up in Orlando, FL. I currently live in Queens.

My interests include reading, writing, visual art, all sports (soccer and Formula One in particular), mountain biking, fitness/nutrition, cooking, and playlist curation.

I’m best described as ambitious, persistent, and curious.

I thrive in the company of family, friends, and all sorts of people—as the pride of my life is the relationships I build and keep. I am perpetually in a good mood, and have a deep seated love for the em dash.
