Aaron Sylvan

Consulting CTO • Due Diligence Expert


I prefer to let others speak for me:



20+ years building technology

2010 - TODAY

Sylvan Social Technology

Consulting CTO

My team and I evaluate technology companies for Angels, Venture Capital, Private Equity, and strategic investors.

We also help startups experiencing technical difficulty in scaling, maintaining pace with feature upgrades, or simply "stuck" at growth plateaus, to perform at the full potential that shareholders want to see.

1995 - 2002

One Technology

An Operations Research firm, One Technology was built upon Helix™, my proprietary set of 'genetic algorithms'.
