Matt Coffin, founder and president of LowerMyBills.com, which sold for $330 million in 2005 to Experian, shared his lessons learned at Splash LA 2012. In addition to founding LowerMyBills.com, Coffin was a member of the Board of Directors for Business.com and has invested in start-ups such as Demand Media, Docstoc, Machinima ShowDazzle and Ecomom.
