Matt is one of the original creators of The Orchard Media Events Group and has been
instrumental in building it into a world class agency, TV production company and Live Music promoter.
Led by Matt, the agency invested heavily into virtual reality from 2015 - including pro-bono work for Velindre Cancer Hospital using VR to help cancer patients get through MRI scans.
Quickly seeing the game changing impact of VR for the healthcare and wellbeing of patients, Matthew decided to form Rescape, raising £480k of equity investment in February 2019.
This investment was used to further develop its platform DR.VR™ and drive the company’s position as the leading supplier in the UK of therapeutic VR in the NHS, Care homes and Hospices with an initial focus on pain and anxiety. The company has successfully raised a further £480k to further its clinical research and product development, which includes a recent service evaluation of the platform for reduction in anxiety for frontline NHS staff - which is now moving forward towards a multisite RCT trial across the UK.
