Matt Pierce describes Immediate as a “financial wellness company.” His company partners with employers to allow employees to access earned but unpaid wages ahead of the usual payday schedule, thereby avoiding high-cost short-term loan options for pressing financial needs.
Pierce says thinking beyond the ordinary can be critical in moving a business forward. “In order to get deals done, in order to make things happen, sometimes you’ve got to be creative.”
Before founding Immediate, Pierce worked in business development leadership roles at multiple established companies and startups.
He is a 2004 finance graduate and earned a Harbert MBA in 2005.
