Fractional CTO

If your venture is missing a CTO or can’t afford to hire a full-time CTO, we can jump in and take over responsibility promptly. Founders often start without a CTO and hire an external agency to develop their MVP. Once they start scaling up their companies, they are overwhelmed with the new challenges coming up.

Together we can set the fundaments for your infrastructure and applications, define all relevant processes and workflows and hire a team to get your business standing on its own feet. A bad software architecture, vacant key positions or an unrealistic strategy can set your company back in years and put the success of your venture at risk.

By working with an interim or fractional CTO as your sparring partner, you can be sure to make the right decisions and maintain your focus on growing your business.
