Sal Syed is a scratch golfer with a deep love and appreciation for the game of golf. He was the co-leader of the inaugural Yale Golf Summit organized at Bandon Dunes in 2012 – bringing golf leaders and prominent Yale alumni and deans together to shape the future of golf.
Sal is the CEO of Arccos Golf, where he works to produce an innovative product out of a combined love of golf and passion for technology.
While Sal was earning his MBA at the Yale University School of Management, he met co-founder Clinton Grusd, who worked to develop the foundation of the business and product concepts, plans and strategies that are used by Arccos. Sal also joined forces with his childhood friend, Ammad Faisal.
These co-founders realized that golf was lacking a high-performing, comprehensive tool to track and analyze a golfer’s game and improve decision-making on the course. They set out to change the way we think about golf and play golf.
He brings deep entrepreneurial experience having worked at software startups as a software engineer, engineering manager, product manager and data architect for over 10 years. He was a senior engineering member at his last startup, Landslide Technologies. Landslide raised $22M in venture financing. It was acquired by j2 Global in 2012.
During his MBA studies, Sal was a Yale Entrepreneurial Institute Fellow and a recipient of the Dean’s Entrepreneurship Award. He has a B.A in Mathematics and Computer Science from Ohio Wesleyan University, where he was the captain of the men’s tennis and cricket teams.
