Matthew Crowe serves as CEO of Ahhha.com, a business that offers a unique "social ideation" platform designed to turn ideas into tangible profits. With social ideation, a term Mr. Crowe coined, a user originates an idea and then taps into the collective wisdom of an online community, which vets and refines the initial concept. By doing so, the Palo Alto, California-based firm minimizes the risk and effort one might otherwise experience. Since Matthew Crowe founded the start-up in 2011, Ahhha.com has helped increasing numbers of subscribers turn fledgling ideas into real-world products, services, or businesses. An experienced innovator, Matthew Crowe initiated and operated a number of business enterprises in the 10 years prior to starting Ahhha.com. Apart from his work in the high-technology sector, his ventures have spanned many markets and industries. His entrepreneurial spirit began in his youth, when he formed his first business at the age of 16. Today, Matthew Crowe lends his considerable expertise with start-up companies via a number of avenues. He has served as a panelist at business competitions and mentored and advised aspiring business contestants. Outside of his work with budding business leaders, he contributes to national and local news publications on a regular basis.
