CTO Mastermind Groups

We have found that the CTO has a unique role on a startup team: they are expected to be fully immersed in a product’s technical architecture and roadmap but are also expected to take part in closing business with major customers. Our CTO Mastermind group is designed to provide a peer advisory board you can brainstorm and compare notes with. We facilitate a single conversation among a small group of peers to discuss issues and challenges, encourage peer to peer critique and guidance on critical business issues. The group not only provides support for operational challenges but encourages to you focus on strategic planning and long-term growth issues.

Technical entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to present their businesses issues and solicit advice in a confidential supportive environment with other CTO’s.

Cost: We offer two levels depending upon where you are in your business.

  • Scaling: $500/month (Businesses doing more than $2M per year)
  • Formation: $100/month (Businesses doing less than $200K per year)
