CTO support for your business

Whether your company is a startup or a large multinational company, a strong CTO is an essential member of your team, but hiring a permanent CTO can take six months or longer. Meanwhile, our veteran CTO can step in and support your business in days.


Armed with expert understanding of the best tech stacks for an MVP, our CTO can support newly funded organizations seeking to boost business performance and advance into their next growth stage.


From bridging gaps after a CTO departure to helping to meet other pressing needs, Vention can provide an executive-level professional with the technical oversight skills you require immediately.


If your goals exceed simple developmental issues, our CTO can add an additional management layer, continuously looking out for business leadership challenges and potential process improvements.

Frequently asked questions

What are the benefits of an external CTO?

Hiring a qualified CTO who’s fluent in both your company’s technology and its business needs is an expensive, long-term undertaking. Our CTO as a Service offering reduces operational risks and maintains engineering continuity on your projects while minimizing costs and the stress of onboarding.

How will an external CTO work with my in-house teams?

However you need them to! You can tap a fractional CTO to jump in on a part-time basis to collaborate with your in-house teams or provide executive expertise for development, planning, and engineering management. Our CTO services are designed to be seamless and flexible, and scale to your needs.

What situations are good fits for CTO as a Service?

External CTO services can support companies at all growth stages, especially when budgets and timelines are tight. Our CTO as a Service offering delivers expertise and leadership support in just about any scenario, including technical oversight, quality and velocity improvement, as well as technical roadmapping, budgeting, and scheduling.

When should a startup use CTO services?

External CTOs can help startups with product auditing, technology consulting, differentiating your technology from competitors, or any challenges your business faces related to technical strategy and alignment — and all with less financial commitment than hiring in-house.
