Description

ARE YOU BUILDING A STARTUP?

BUT YOU DON'T HAVE A TECHNICAL BACKGROUND?

You might wonder:

  1. How do I delegate software development when I know nothing about it?

  2. How can I know that this technical solution is better than the other?

  3. How do I even find out if there are better solutions?

  4. How can I choose developers or a Web agency without a technical background?

  5. How do I trust developers or Web agencies when I can’t even evaluate their work?

  6. How can I be sure that developers are not being misleading?

  7. How do I manage software development? Should I use outsourcing or internal developers?

  8. What specific techniques are there to build a startup while saving money in the early stage?


WHAT DO YOU THINK A SENIOR CTO WOULD DO?

IN THE EARLY STAGE, A CTO WOULD USE HIS TECH MANAGEMENT SKILLS TO:

  • Outsource the development, making it go faster with appropriate resources

  • Avoid paying for a full-time developer once the product becomes available

  • Change the developer or the agency when it’s relevant for the project

  • Choose several developers with particular skills instead of a general developer

  • Use technical experts in Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and Game Design in order to create a more innovative solution


All those activities do not require any coding skills whatsoever. Just a bit of know-how and specific technical management skills.

With MyCTOFriend, you can move forward and learn to do the same for the early stage of your project.


FOR STARTUPS, EVERYTHING SHOULD BE FAST. 
WAITING IS NOT AN OPTION.

FINDING THE RIGHT CTO FOR YOUR PROJECT CAN TAKE YEARS, AND IT'S NOT A MUST-HAVE  THAT SHOULD STOP YOU FROM GETTING STARTED.

With this course, you'll learn all the basic technical management skills a CTO would use to build and grow a startup, from zero to a million users.
