About Matt Stevenson

In addition to Support Local NI, Matt is also one half of Place Proud, where he makes videos showcasing the best local food and drink from across Northern Ireland.

When the impact of COVID-19 on local businesses affected his own family, he decided to use his technology, design and marketing capabilities to create a service that would help people going through a similar situation.

The outcome of this was Support Local NI, a tech-for-good project that aims to support and sustain local businesses in Northern Ireland during these unfortunate and uncertain times we find ourselves in.
