Welcome to Growth Compound!

I’m Bardia, a VP of Sales focused on building and scaling bottoms-up, SaaS startups in infrastructure software, dev security, and AI/ML.

The goal of this site is to produce inspiring content for startup builders.

A little about me:

I lead the sales team at Teleport, an infrastructure software startup that reached 🦄 status. During my 4-year tenure, we grew ARR by 2.5-3x YoY, while exceeding an NRR of 140%.

Key Highlights:

  • First Sales hire. Joined at the seed stage, pre-$1M ARR, and scaled the business to 15M+ ARR while leading all revenue functions (AEs, CSMs, SDRs, SEs, Sales Ops).
  • Built our GTM infrastructure and grew the team to 80+.
  • Surpassed our company’s global revenue targets for 10 consecutive quarters.

I also serve as a Go-to-Market advisor for Seed to Series C startups like RudderStack:

Bardia has been advising RudderStack for the last 2 years and has been instrumental to not only the success of RudderStack but also my personal success. Since bringing him on as an advisor we managed to grow revenue over 400% and raised funds from Kleiner Perkins and Insight Partners.
