Matt OGUZ

Matt is founding partner at Venture Science. He started Venture Science in 2012 out of his one-bedroom apartment in Palo Alto. His idea behind a new generation venture capital firm still stands today as the core tenet of the firm: how can we avoid biases and therefore escape human fallibility to make better investment decisions within the realm of venture capital.

Matt is outspoken about this approach and has written several articles explaining various dimensions of the principles we use at Venture Science.

Matt is Turkish-American and studied at Tarsus American College and Ankara Science Lycée where he received two national science scholar awards in Physics. His academic admissions tests ranked in the top 100 students out of 1.5 million applicants. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Bogazici University and an MBA from Robinson College of Business at GSU where he studied principles of Decision Theory.
