Executive Team

Eric Costa

CFO / COO

In his dual role, Eric is responsible both for the company’s overall financial performance and for providing world-class support services to the Sunrise Labs team. He is a creative problem-solver who uses thoughtful analysis and strategic vision to inspire and lead companies and organizations.

Prior to joining Sunrise Labs, Eric was active in the Boston and NH startup ecosystems, where he provided mentoring, guidance, and contract CFO services to over two dozen startups in a wide range of technology industries, as well as providing support to 10X Venture Partners, NH’s leading early-stage investment group.

Before becoming involved in the local startup ecosystems, Eric served as the CFO of several technology companies. As the CFO of Mad Doc Software, a financially distressed independent video game developer, he dramatically turned around the business and led the company to a successful sale to Rockstar Games. Eric was also instrumental in turning around Harmonix (makers of the iconic Rock Band games), where he employed sophisticated financial analysis to gain insights into the business to drive decision-making. Prior to working in the video game industry, he served as the CFO of an engineering company, where he raised over $16 million to fuel the company’s growth.

In addition to his various CFO positions, Eric has had a number of other diverse and interesting roles over the course of his career. He founded a wine importing, distribution, and merchandising company, ran a manufacturing company, and was the project manager of a NASA astrophysics research satellite (the Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer).

Eric earned an SB in Chemical Engineering from MIT and an MBA from Stanford.
