Full Name

Matt McCann

Founder & CEO
Access Earth

Matt McCann is an entrepreneur, web developer and software engineer. He is CEO and founder of Access Earth.

Matt has cerebral palsy and has struggled with accessibility challenges his entire life but it wasn’t until 2012, when as a college student he booked a room at a hotel in London that marketed itself as accessible only to discover upon arrival that it was not.

Matt used his Master’s in Software Engineering to create a platform that people could use to easily access accessibility information and upload their own feedback on places they had visited.
