Co-founder and CEO
What We Like: EatStreet is one of those companies, and Matt Howard is one of those people, that makes you feel a little self-conscious about your own accomplishments. Howard and co-founders Eric Martell and Alex Wyler started EatStreet, originally BadgerBites, while undergrads at UW. Three years and nearly two-hundred Madison restaurant clients later, they’ve expanded their online food delivery service to more than forty cities (and counting) across the country.
Bragging Rights: The meteoric rise of EatStreet includes wins in multiple business plan competitions and a successful round of Series A funding that netted them more than $2 million. EatStreet on Easy Street? Only time—and money—will tell.
