About Matt Mckay
CEO of Goald
Matt Mckay founder and CEO of Goald was born and raised in Hull, before moving to Melbourne when he was 22 to take up a role at a Tech company. Working with so many talented tech experts coupled with his love for all things sport is where the Idea for Goald was firstr conceived.
Matt wanted to create a positive and healthy feel good App where people could showcase their talents, “call out” their mates, compete against people from all over the world at absolutely everything and top leaderboards… but more importantly have fun! With no fear of negative comments or cruel messages…
Over the next four years Matt went about creating his impressive team of industry experts to help bring this ambitious App to life… which after many long gruelling days and nights Matt and his team finally did in June 22 when locally releasing the app ready for testing. Fast forward to March 2023 when operations are in full swing… they have thousands over users all over the world after just 6 months, they partner with major sports clubs, have pro athletes, social media stars, pop stars and even pro sports teams on the App.
When asked what Matt is most proud of about Goald he said “Never in my wildest dreams did I envisage I would be able to create such an incredible team of such talented but more importantly good people! The best part of my job is being able to work day in and day out with such amazing people who I respect and admire so much. What we have been able to create is truly mind blowing and when we hear feedback from our users it really is very humbling.”
If at the end of this whole journey we have been able to create a feel good App where people from all over the world feel confident to show off their skills and talents in our positive communities then we will have achieved everything we set out to. We don’t have comments or messaging built into the app… you are only ever judged on how well you can do a challenge… not what you wear, where you are from or how much money you earn, only how well you do a challenge!… post a new challenge, take on someone else’s challenge… call out your mates, top leaderboards… or simply just sit back, watch and enjoy. Goald really is an App for everyone and we couldn’t be prouder!
