C Élites is a leadership consulting firm focused on the technology sector in Silicon Valley. Our clients include technology startups, established technology companies, incubators and venture funds. We assist companies with leadership search and consult in other areas such as leadership assessment, performance management and compensation design. We pride ourselves on our ability to partner with clients to understand their long-term vision and work closely with their leaders to identify and solve leadership challenges. In an environment where startups are born to innovate in a fast-changing world, the right leadership can have a direct impact on the eventual success of a startup and this matters to both founders and investors. In response to this environment we work closely with the founders and the investors to identify and resolve the leadership needs of startups.

C Élites is founded and run by partners with a combined experience of more than 50 years across Technology, Human Resources, Strategy and Leadership Recruitment. We are driven by our passion for new technology and our curiosity and admiration for the innovators in technology. Technology startups need leaders that thrive on innovation and also have the right market perspective and have an ability to build a compelling story around the product and sell this to potential customers. They also need to be charismatic leaders who can inspire the development team to perform at their full potential.

We leverage our understanding of technology with our professional network to help identify the best candidates for our Leadership recruitment mandates. We have also built a proprietary tool that helps us identify, validate and shortlist the right talent using portals such as LinkedIn, Facebook and Google. We then work closely with our clients through a multi-step process covering evaluation, comparisons, reference checks and initial outline offer. We continue to advise our clients to negotiate and then assist candidates in making sound decisions.​
