Equal parts techie, manager, and salesman, Matias founded Keepcon in 2008 to provide web 2.0 companies with a cost-effective solution for moderating the user generated content (UCG) on their websites. Inappropriate UCG (such as comments, photos, or videos) represents a major liability to companies hoping to build online communities. With Keepcon’s proprietary technology (which is particularly adept at analyzing informal slang) companies that once employed teams of 25+ people to censor content can now outsource all moderation services to Keepcon for a fraction of the cost. The first mover in the Spanish-speaking market, Keepcon is VC-backed and projects to grow quickly as it builds its team and expands its list of clients in Latin America and Spain.
