MDB Capital Holdings Appoints Matthew Hayden to Board of Directors

DALLAS, TX / ACCESSWIRE / July 27, 2022 / MDB Capital Holdings, LLC, a privately held Public Venture Capital platform with the objective of growing the public venture marketplace and optimizing the way meaningful technologies are financed and built, today announced the appointment of Matthew Hayden to its Board of Directors.

“Matthew’s decades of experience in public venture investing and advising emerging growth public companies will immediately have an impact on our firm’s mission to build a community-driven platform to commercialize and finance small public companies,” said Christopher Marlett, MDB Capital Holdings CEO and Chairman.

Mr. Hayden is an active investor through his family office, Sea Purity Investments, which employs a multi-strategy approach and finances numerous public and private venture-style companies each year, including several that have gone on to earn multi-billion-dollar valuations.

Prior to founding Sea Purity, Matthew spent over two decades building two investor relations and consulting firms tailored to the unique needs of small companies. Collectively, under his leadership as Chairman of HC International Inc. and MZ North America, he helped develop and implement comprehensive IR plans for over 200 public and private companies, which successfully raised over $10 billion in capital.

Mr. Hayden graduated summa cum laude from the University of South Carolina with a B.S. in Finance and Business Management, including a focus on the public markets.

“MDB’s model of ‘sustainable philanthropy’ to only found and finance companies with the potential to positively impact society for generations perfectly aligns with my personal and professional experiences and passions,” said Mr. Hayden. “I look forward to helping create a meaningful impact on shareholder value at MDB, as well as with the community of investors and companies we have the opportunity to work with through our platform.”
