Where We Help

Start Up / Fast Growth

Changing Skill Set

There are many challenges in managing early stage companies, not least the ever changing demands on your skill set. We regularly work with start up tech leaders (often introduced by investors) to help them negotiate their road map to scale

Established Business

Being CTO at an established business is rarely less than challenging and can often feel like an isolated role. Whether you have specific issues to discuss or just want a confidential, objective sounding board, we have mentors who can help

Career Acceleration

High Impact Career Strategy

You know where you want to go but, you’re unsure how to get there. What does the road map look like? What skills do you need to succeed at the top level? How do you create an effective career strategy and negotiate the politics?

Mentoring Use Cases

The Accidental CTO

Where the role is growing faster than your existing skill set. Perhaps a founder/early hire or senior developer rapidly promoted to CTO. Our mentors have been there and can help you negotiate the challenges ahead

Lonely At The Top

Good at what you do but with gaps in your skill set or company has no-one with a level of technical or managerial insight to bounce ideas with?  Mentors can help with new products, ideas or just as a sounding board.

External Validation

Am I up to date? Am I doing the right thing? No matter what level we reach doubts can creep in, aka the imposter syndrome and most of us suffer from it. A mentor can help validate what you are doing is right and is best practice.

 CTO Academy course has had a huge impact on my career as an early startup CTO.  They took it further in the 1-1 mentorship program, not only did they help us think through tough technical decisions and come up with a hiring strategy for our future growth and scale needs but also walked us through the evolution of each process and decision in a way that we got a sense of why things are done in a certain way and how everything fits together. I highly recommend the CTO Academy
