There are two questions I am asked by new startup founders far more frequently than anything else. The first is ‘How can I raise funds to finance my product build?’ and the second, ‘Where can I find a CTO to help build my product?’
Everywhere you look, a startup (or, in many instances, a man with half-a-plan) is seeking a ‘Rockstar’ developer or ‘Ninja’ to help take their fledgling idea and make it happen. Of course, they can’t pay you in cash, but they will offer a generous equity deal and you’ll proudly wear the prestigious title of CTO.
If you’ve ever had a smart tech idea and the only thing holding you back was a failure to find someone who shared your vision and build the product, then you are not alone.
