Interim CTO.

Without a technology strategy, your company won’t stay in business for long. I help founders to plan, build and release high-quality software products which customers and investors love.

Lack of technical knowledge limits you and your company

On early-stage development of a software product, many decisions are going to dictate the success or failure of a project. As a founder, you have questions like:

The answers to those questions are going to shape your product. They are also critical to the future of the business.

HOW I CAN HELP

As an Interim CTO, I’m solely focused on your business and growth plans. I help you to find those answer (and many others) in the context of your business.

Great ideas get ruined by poor execution

You probably heard stories of Entrepreneurs with a great idea which got ruined when poorly developed by an inexperienced technical co-founder or freelancers.

You’re going to waste motivation, time and money building something that won’t attract customers nor investors.

HOW I CAN HELP

As an Interim CTO, I help you to build your idea right from the first time. We work together on creating a valuable product which is attractive to customers and investors, without wasting unnecessary time.

You’re not Google

The Internet is full of articles about how Google, Facebook, and how other similar-sized companies are building and scaling their products. The reality is simple: you’re not them.

Trying to copy the same technologies or to replicate processes and strategies used by those big companies with a massive amount of customers, ridiculous financial power and hundreds of employees won’t work for you.

You don’t need to spend months building a product to support millions of customers when your goal is to define product/market fit.

HOW I CAN HELP

As an Interim CTO, I help you to find the best technologies, processes and strategies that make sense to your business size, context and goals.

Finding a great technical co-founder takes time

It involves the future of the company, shares, external perception and having the skills that will empower the management team to build the business. It’s a long-term relationship, like a marriage, which will have to endure good and bad moments together.

The problem is: not having a technical leader focused on getting the strategy and execution right limits your chances of building a successful business.

HOW I CAN HELP

As an Interim CTO, I help you to get the technical strategy and execution right, not blocking you until you get the perfect technical co-founder onboard. I support you on the screening and evaluation of potential candidates and during the transition between the interim CTO role to the permanent CTO position.

Are we a good fit?

I only work with companies that can benefit from my expertise and that I feel confident about delivering a positive return on investment.
