Kaivan Dave is an entrepreneur, TV host, growth marketer, and ecommerce expert. He helps brands up their game and take their ecommerce marketing to the next level. He is currently the CEO and founder of Glyder, a natural personal care and grooming product line that is serving the world by helping consumers find a better way to use beauty products.

Kaivan also is the host of the Staying Uncomfortable show, which was born as a result of a bad breakup in his personal life. The show features entrepreneurs, fitness professionals, and other experts who dive deep and share their vulnerabilities, and how they stay outside of their comfort zone in order to experience more success in business and in life. Past guests include professional bodybuilder and world-renowned Mark Bell, and Sean Riley of the Shark Tank Featured product Dude Wipes.

Kaivan also has a successful track record of working with other companies to help them develop better products, and marketing strategies in order to see more results. At Lifes2Good Kaivan was responsible for quadrupling their revenue and growing their Direct-to-Consumer business. During his time at Lifes2Good, he was the Director of E-commerce, and he grew his team from a one-man show to an in-house agency. His creative vision and expertise allowed the entire company (every brand under the Lifes2Good label) to benefit from his new strategic direction. Lifes2Good, brand Viviscal was recently sold to Church & Dwight for a reported €150m.

After his departure from Lifes2Good, he Joined RXBAR and within three months he was able to break the company's B2C sales record in Jan 2017. Additionally, in May of 2017, he spearheaded the completion of an entire website redesign project and in October 2017 Kellogg acquired RXBAR for $600M.

In June 2017, Kaivan's pursued his American Dream one more time with Glyder. Glyder is a minority driven underdog, and our products were born because we were the first to identify an unmet need, and to define a new brand that instills love and confidence within our community. Glyder, we are a company that is built on core values; which define the choices we make as a brand. We care for our community, customers, employees, environment and most importantly--the health of your skin!

We ensure that each product we ship, uses the most natural ingredients for our customers and for the environment.

Kaivan is currently transforming the personal care industry by helping people believe in themselves, and is working hard to help inspire others through his new show Staying Uncomfortable.
