Ryan Broshar General Information


Mr. Ryan Broshar is the Founder and serves as Managing Director and Partner at Matchstick Ventures. Mr. Broshar started his first venture when he was 7 years old, harvesting and selling sweet corn door to door in his hometown in Iowa. While lucrative, he have since gone on to be the founder of multiple startups including University Guide; a university-based publication business that he started while at the University of Minnesota, and sold two years out of college. Following this sale, he moved to Boulder for his MBA at CU-Boulder. While there, he dug into the startup communities movement. The energy around tech and startups in Boulder acted as a catalyst for him to start something similar when he moved back to the Twin Cities in 2012. In short order, he co-founded Beta.MN, Twin Cities Startup Week and the Techstars Retail Accelerator w/ Target. These programs have had an outsized impact on the local startup community and continue to operate today.
