Mattan Griffel

Mattan Griffel is a rock star. It’s that simple. A self-taught developer, he started teaching a class on Skillshare, which ended up turning into One Month(which he co-founded), a Y Combinator-backed startup here in NYC. Focused on changing the way people learn throughout their lives, they’ve empowered 15,000 students so far to build website and applications from scratch. But that’s just the beginning. They’re expanding into One Month non-technical classes to give people all over the world access to great teachers and educational content for less than the cost of college.

Oh, he’s also a partner at GrowHack, the world’s first growth hacking shop for startups based in New York City. Oh, and he’s a teacher at General Assembly, and NY Ambassador to the Sandbox Network, a collection of young leaders under 30.

He has also advised companies like Pepsico, Bloomberg, GM, NYSE, and JPMorgan, spoken at New York University, First Round Capital and Social Media Week, and has also been featured in AlleyWatch, Forbes, BusinessWeek, Mashable and The Next Web.
