I am Ido Sarig, a Startup Coach. I have been mentoring CEOs and founding teams of early-stage companies for more than 15 years. I have been selected by several world-class accelerator programs and incubators to be part of their coaching teams, including Alchemist, AlchemistX, ICON , Next47 and Startup Wind.
Companies I have provided services to have raised venture rounds of tens of millions of dollars, and had successful exits. Some notable examples include VDOO (acquired by JFrog for $300M), Cyvera (acquired by Checkpoint for $200M) and Cynerio (raised a $30M B round).
My main expertise is marketing, business development and fundraising. My specialties include Category Design, Product Strategy and Product Marketing. My proven track record of successful category creation has been covered by the New York Times and Fortune Magazine, among others.
My unique combination of big-company and start-up background across multiple domains - enterprise IT, embedded systems, development tools - enables me to provide well-rounded, experience-based insights which are crucial during the early goings.
I also sat on the other side of the table, as a Corporate Development leader responsible for strategic M&A transactions of >$225M, and as a VC with experience as an investor - so I have a good perspective on what investors and potential buyers are looking for.
"As an advisor to my company, and later as an executive on my team, Ido delivered strong benefits to our product strategy and marketing efforts. He is extremely insightful and adept at understanding the product and competitive landscape and direction. His experience was key in building out and driving our strategic road-map. I would be happy to have the opportunity work with Ido in the future." - Jonathan Lindo, CEO, Replay Solutions
"Ido has been involved with OpsHub for a few years initially as an advisor and more recently as a board member. It has been a pleasure to work with him. He has deep experience and knowledge of what it takes to bring a successful product to market. His advice on partnering and go-to market strategy has been extremely helpful." - Sandeep Jain, CEO, OpsHub
