About Matthew

Matthew Averkamp has been building online businesses for almost a decade. A Native Wisconsinite, Matthew relocated to Austin, Texas in 2006. Now a part-time digital nomad, Matthew enjoys live music, gongfu cha, future technologies, and traveling abroad. He has participated in unique events like Project Getaway and enjoys connecting with other like-minded entrepreneurs.

Matthew is also an enthusiastic supporter of websites like Kiva, where he has provided loans to more than 2,000 individuals around the world.


In 2004, Matthew co-founded AccountingCoach, a website that teaches students and small business owners the basics of accounting. Today it is considered the #1 website for learning accounting online and receives more than 2 million visitors each month.

While building AccountingCoach from the ground up, Matthew struggled to find the right tools to grow his business. He saw the need for TopAlternatives, an all-encompassing resource that provides unbiased recommendations to small business owners.
