Developed World Microfinance Director
Matthew Kane
Experience: Matthew and his wife Sonia live in Raleigh, North Carolina and have been actively involved as a Rotary family. Two of their children were Rotary Youth Exchange students and spent a year living in Santiago, Chile. Ryan, their oldest son, was a recent President of the Raleigh Midtown Rotary Club. Matthew is the founder of Cutting Edge Engraving and operated this business successfully for twenty eight years selling plaques, awards and industrial engraving before selling his business in June 2017. Recognizing a need for building entrepreneurship in an underserved area of Raleigh, he worked with North Raleigh Rotary Club and a group of community partners to create LaunchRALEIGH. The program offers ten weeks of business training, microloans, mentors and networking opportunities. In three years the program has hosted five classes and boasts nearly one hundred graduates. Other cities are now invited to replicate this successful model using this template: www. LaunchMyCity.org. He was honored to serve as the 2014-15 District Governor for District 7710.
