Book Vooza For Your Event

The tech world is buzzing about Vooza. Get in on the action by inviting Vooza’s CEO (and/or other team members) to come speak at your tech conference, school, workplace, or Bar Mitzvah. We’ll deliver some laughs and give people a break from all that tech jargon BS. Or we can give a (relatively) more serious presentation on how to use humor in the workplace which is great for non-techy crowds. Best of all, we’re cheaper than a Steve Jobs hologram. Contact us or read on to learn more.

“Matt was an excellent addition to our line-up. He manages to make people laugh and not with cheap jokes but smart insights into our digital lifestyle. He’s critical, but in a funny way and with great respect and passion for his subject.”
-Boris Veldhuijzen van Zanten | Founder, CEO of

“We loved having Matt as our emcee for 36|86! His background in both comedy and the startup world are the perfect ingredients for a tech conference host. We highly recommend Matt and hope to have him back at 36|86 in the future!”
-Courtney Corlew | Director of Communications | 36|86 Conference
“Our Annual Global Summit is a BIG deal for Criteo, so we needed a BIG act who could relate to our start-up company mentality, our techie background and could hold their own against our fearless audience. We were delighted that we signed up Matt who not only covered a wide spectrum of hot tech topics in a humorous way, but connected his experiences with those of the audience; he literally had them laughing in shared pain. Highly recommended to bring energy and humor to any event.

-Eleanor Murray | Senior Director Internal Communications | Criteo

“Matt addressed 250+ business executives at our Annual Conference in Denver. He provided a welcomed break of humor by lampooning tech entrepreneurs and start-ups. He then transitioned into a terrific presentation on how business leaders can use humor to their advantage with clients and employees. It was a great combination–providing laughs as well as valuable takeaways that can be utilized by executives and managers in any setting.”
-Art Flanagan | Vice President, Communications | CASRO

“Matt was our closing keynote for FI Live 2014, and what a great way to end the show. His comic look at the start-up world was hilarious and had the whole room in fits of laughter. A mixture of Matt’s stand up wit and very funny Vooza videos the talk was a hit. Comedy is hard at a conference especially a tech conference but Matt nailed it! I am looking forward to inviting Matt back for Future shows.”
-Natasha Waldron | Event Producer | Future Insights

“Matt Ruby was an adaptable, professional and entertaining host for our ClearMark Awards. He’s easy to work with and seems ready to tackle whatever idea or last-minute curveball you throw at him. We’ve heard fantastic feedback from attendees who called Matt the best emcee we’ve ever had and remarked at how well he kept the night’s momentum going. Highly recommended.”
-Meghan Codd Walker | Principal | Zuula Consulting

“We recently featured Matt at TechFestNW in Portland, and he had us all laughing at the follies and foibles of his fake startup Vooza for nearly an hour. It was refreshing to take his lighter and witty look at those brave entrepreneural souls who take their dreams public, exposing some of the many absurdities and confusing jargon that we all manage to put up with in real life. I’d highly recommend Matt as a great way to spice up any tech, startup or entrepreneurial conference or event.”
Terry St. Marie | Startup investor & emcee | TFNW

“Matt gave a pitch for Vooza during The Next Web Conference USA 2013. Having enjoyed the Vooza videos for over a year, it was great to see that the humor worked just as well live. We were treated to satirical advice for entrepreneurs from Matt’s expertly realized spoof character. It left me thinking that more conferences should feature standup comedy – it really made for a perfect change of pace.”
-Martin Bryant | Editor-in-Chief | The Next Web

“C3, the Creative Change Community in Richmond, Virginia booked Matt Ruby to speak to our audience. His material satirized startup culture and the venture capital community. The material was hilarious and the audience was laughing throughout. I would recommend any tech or business-savvy audience to hire Matt.” 
-Carl Johnson | Chairman | RVA Creativity Awards

“In a star-studded tech lineup at NYC Uncubed, Matt was our most entertaining speaker.” 
-Chris Johnson | Co-Founder at Wakefield Media | Uncubed
