What is a CTO

CTO stands for Chief Technology Officer

A technical leader is fundamental for any organisation. In startups at the initial stage, a founder or some technically savvy employee might be enough to lead the software development team and make technology-related decisions.

However, as the organisation grows and becomes more complex it requires a technically sound individual who can spearhead the projects and take managerial decisions to achieve organizational goals. This individual is the CTO or Chief Technology Officer. An experienced CTO can be very expensive particularly for a small company with tight budgets.

The Problem

As an entrepreneur or CEO of a small company, have you ever faced these questions?
I have this great idea for an app, but how do I implement it?
I’ve developed our first app with a low budget, but now I realise the design won’t support our growth!
I need to meet investors, assess technical solutions and partners, develop technical roadmaps and code but I have no idea how to do this - I need someone with technical leadership.
I am budget constrained and can’t afford a full time CTO. I want flexibility and the possibility of paying what I use.
