CTO as a Service

The power of a high level CTO at a fraction of the cost.

See how we can help

New technologies are exploding and you need help.

VR/AR/MR, Artificial Intelligence, Computer Vision, Blockchain – all of these new technologies allow us to invent more than ever before.

But building the world’s next killer application or platform requires a broad understanding across all of these fields and more.

But who has the budget for a high level CTO?

When you’re a startup or early phase company trying to get an idea off the ground you dont have the budget for a high-level, experienced CTO, or you simply don’t need one full time.

What if you could just borrow a CTO?

What if instead, you could just “borrow” a high-level CTO? Rent someone who drinks from the firehose of the bleeding edge and pokes their nose into every new technological advance in the industry, but only when you needed them?

CTO as a Service. A high-level CTO, only when you need one.

That’s what CTO as a Service is all about.   We bring the industry experience, deep networks and technical expertise when you need it, how you need it and for only as long as you need it.

Rates
We offer a prepaid package, where hours are given at significant discounts, or a pay-as-you-go option for companies that have more ad-hoc requirements.

Pre-Paid

PrePaid packages guarantee you a certain amount of hours across the entire range of agreed services every month. We establish a Slack channel for ongoing and immediate real-time communication and build in phone calls, skypes and site visits as per your requirements.
Pay As You Go
A Pay As You Go arrangement means you don’t get the security of guaranteed time, but you only pay for what you need. We make all the same services available, including slack / email / skype and meetings etc, but we just keep track of the hours used and bill you at the end of the month.
