What We Do

Slope brings order, trust, and predictability to your clinical supply chain

Our Mission

Slope puts patients at the center of your clinical trial supply chain by connecting everything and everyone.

Our Story

The concept for Slope sprang from a prior company founded by Rust and Michael Felix that forecast supply and demand for complex e-commerce supply chains. It was immensely unfulfilling work. Everything changed in late 2016 when the two brothers discovered that the supply chains running cutting-edge clinical trials were incredibly antiquated and chaotic. Fast forward to today, and Slope has become the leader in designing data-driven and patient-centric clinical supply chains for some of the most demanding studies on the planet.

Our Values

Slope has five core values that are near and dear to the hearts of everyone on our team. We are truly passionate about the work we do, and it shows.
1Patients are paramount.
2Better, stronger, faster.
3Driven by data.
4Job done, have fun.

Two Brothers, One Vision

Slope helps ClinOps teams make data-driven decisions that accelerate time-to-market for demanding studies.

Rust Felix

Co-founder / CEO
The older, taller Felix brother. Rust holds a Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering with concentration in computational fluid dynamics. He is one of the few engineers who won't bore you deeply at a dinner party. Throughout his career Rust has used complex data sets to inform mathematical models that solve real problems.

Michael Felix

Co-founder / CTO
The younger, slightly shorter, (and some people would argue) more dashing Felix brother. Michael is an accomplished designer, developer, and educator with over 15 years of professional experience delivering human-centric software, systems, and services across industries ranging from eCommerce to clinical research.
