We help start-ups succeed!
Quimby Melton, Co-Founder and CEO
‘From VPs to SDRs, sales hires are notoriously difficult for early-stage companies. Activated Scale substantially reduces the risk of mishires.
Like Toptal or Turing for sales pros, Prateek and his team source experienced talent. But they also take the time to ensure there's a fit between a sales pro's experience and a company's particular need. Financially, Activate Scale's try-before-you-buy model makes building a sales team affordable and low risk. As the relationship develops, Activated Scale makes exercising an "FTE option" quick, easy, and affordable.
We've benefited from Activated Scale's model enormously. It's exactly what we needed at this stage.’
Dan Giovacchini, Co-Founder
'Activated Scale got us access to a PLG-focused sales expert that helped us set a strategy and foundation for growth. The ease and speed with which we got started was awesome. And it was a great fit. Would highly recommend other founders give this a try.'
Tim Eller, CEO
‘I am a technical founder, so sales has historically been a black box to me. Yet, as a founder, I obviously need to sell! Prateek set me up with a mentor who, over the course of three sessions, helped orient me in the philosophies and techniques of selling, and helped me get my hands dirty in every aspect. Starting with listening to me describe my company and product, he then helped me identify the profile of my ideal customer, clearly delineate the problems I am solving, distinguish my company from the competition, structure my written and oral communications, conduct first and subsequent phone calls, set an outreach cadence, get to know the various sales SaaS to help me organize my efforts, and increase my LinkedIn engagement through blog posts. I appreciated having homework so I could be sure to feel my growth.’
Binny Gill, Founder and CEO
'Activated Scale quickly understood my current stage and recommended an expert that has sold to my buyer to help me build my Sales GTM. I highly recommend other start-up founders to work with this team'
Traven Watase, Founder
'Your fractional sales talent outperformed my full-time sales employee!
Pranay Prakash, Founder and CEO

Michael Sitarzewski, CEO
'I’ve had nothing but a remarkable experience with you and the team you’ve recommended. On-boarding was simple, and the terms are founder-friendly. Thank you so much for making room for us in your schedule! I love what you’re doing.'
Hanes Singh, Founder and CEO
'Activated Scale helped us to bring on an experienced salesperson. The speed with which we got her was exceptional. Not only did she have the experience selling to our buyer but could hit the ground running. I highly recommend other startup founders to work with this team.'
Matteo Carroll, Co-Founder
'You brought on a great hire, super fast!'
