December 2023


Berrijam announces the departure of co-founder Matt Lee, effective November 2023.


Matt joined Berrijam in February 2023 and served as the Head of Business Strategy for Australia.

As the Head of Business Strategy, Matt's key achievements included:


  1. Securing the Canberra Innovation Network Innovation Connect (ICON) Grant: Matt played a crucial role in obtaining this prestigious grant, enabling Berrijam to leverage additional resources for its growth and innovation in the AI and data sector.

  2. Developing Go-to-Market Strategy for Australia: He was instrumental in crafting a comprehensive strategy tailored to the Australian market, focusing on expanding Berrijam’s reach and impact in the region.

  3. Establishing Legal Frameworks: Utilizing his expertise as a legal expert, Matt set up essential legal frameworks, ensuring compliance and a strong foundation for business operations in Australia.


Alas, life happens, and Matt has returned to his previous engagement with the Australian Government, armed with the experience of the challenges that small tech startups face in Australia.


In his LinkedIn post, Matt reflected on his time at Berrijam: "My time with Berrijam has come to an end. I want to thank the whole team, particularly Avishkar Misra, for giving me a chance to be part of a startup trying to make a big impact on the way people access data and AI. It's been fantastic to learn so much and meet so many great people, but for now it's back to the more familiar surrounds of the Australian Government. I for one will be keeping an eye out for all of the next cool stuff that's coming from Berrijam, and you definitely should too!"


The Berrijam team is grateful to Matt for the time, and while we are saddened to see him step aside, we know he is not too far. We wish him success in his future endeavours.
