You run a technology based business.
You have the vision. You have the goal. You have the focus. Now all you have to do is build the tech, launch it, monetize it, scale it, avoid business killing mistakes, hire the right people, and responsibly spend your money and time.
Simple right? Unfortunately, no…
How will you tread the technological waters ahead, choose the right tech stack, hire the best employees and contractors, protect your business data and intellectual property, and in the end, win?
You need a CTO to lead the way.
Why You Need A Chief Technology Officer, Sort of…
Making the right technology choices won’t necessarily lead to success, but making the wrong choices will kill you. That’s why you need an expert on your team to lead the way and help inform the technological decisions in your business.
If you are technical or have a technical co-founder, perfect, you’re probably good to go. But if you don’t, you should hire a CTO, well, sort of…
You could hire a C-level executive to your team. But that brings a whole new set of challenges to your business, including a hefty salary. The median CTO salary in the United States is $233,705. Whew, that’s a lot of dough to shell out for an early stage business. Money that you probably should spend elsewhere, like on programmers, services, and infrastructure.
Let’s do a simple math comparison:
- 🧑 4 Employees
- ⏳ 7,776 Overseas Dev Hours
- 📦 1 Marketable MVP
- 🍔 43,962 Big Macs
You need help. You need someone who knows what to look for, the questions to ask, and the gotchas to avoid. But you also need to be fiscally responsible considering the stage of you business.
That’s where we come in.
We provide CTO as a Service, for as long or short a time period as you need. We’re right in-between a fellow co-founder and your best friend. And maybe a little bit of your momma.
We want you to:
- Be responsible (your momma)
- Build a successful business (your co-founder)
- Be profitable (so you can buy your best friend lunch, occasionally)
Eventually, our interim CTO service will need to be replaced by a full-time CTO, because you will keep growing and win, right? But for now, what you need is a dedicated and experienced partner to help make wise choices, cultivate your team, and build your product.
Spacetime has provided CTO as a Service at StudioHop Fitness since 2015.
