About S. Slade Sundar

I’ve successfully held C-Level and Executive roles in Product Development, Operations, Brand Marketing, Strategy, and Business Development leading the efforts for startups from 1MM to 100MM+.

Currently, I help startups that need an experienced C-level Executive (CEO, CMO, CTO, COO) or an Entrepreneur in Residence (EIR) to tackle short term projects.

Silicon Valley + Beyond

In 2016, I began working discreetly as an operational “fixer” for startups that were on the verge of collapse in Silicon Valley, NYC, London, and Paris. I went hands-on to rework culture, operations, and product while re-training Founders how to succeed.

Prior to that, As COO, I helped grow a software and research startup called Achieve into one of the top three companies providing endurance event registration and nonprofit crowdfunding SaaS to companies and nonprofits ranging from Nike to Leukemia Lymphoma Society.
