Alumnus Matt Higgins ’02 was featured in AM New York about his appearance as a guest investor in the current season of the ABC show Shark Tank.
A New York City native who cut his teeth working for Mayor Rudy Giuliani before carving out a career in sports and investment is ready to jump into the “Shark Tank.”
Matthew Higgins, the CEO of RSE Ventures and vice chairman of the Miami Dolphins, was slated to make his premiere as a “guest shark” on the ABC reality show Sunday night. In August he tweeted that he was “excited and humbled” about the opportunity, saying “I’m obsessed with this show and have watched every episode since the first one in 2009.”
He graduated from Queens College in 1998 and started the Action Desk at the Queens Tribune before leaving to work for Giuliani. He studied at Fordham Law School while working as Giuliani’s press secretary in City Hall.
