Who are Fractional services for?

Hiring a fractional CTO can help you accomplish goals with more speed and assuredness

You’ve identified an opportunity

and you need to decide how to use tech, data and software to build a solution. You need to define the right tech, the approach and decide who and when you need to hire.

Your tech or data isn’t quite right

and this prevents your business and team accomplishing your goals. You need to see what the problem is quickly and deploy a correction and manage the period of change effectively.

You’re raising investment

and you need to demonstrate how your tech approach will deliver a return on investment. We also know how to manage and close funding - and we can guide you step-by-step.

You’re looking to scale your tech

and you need to analyse the costs and benefits of which directions to take. You need something which is cost-effective in the long-term and compliant with all relevant regulations.
