It's Interesting to see this field develop: I market myself as an "interim CTO" and I've recently met others that fulfil the same role. I think there many advantages for founders going down this route instead of tethering themselves to an unsuitable/inexperienced/"cheap" co-founder. The biggest challenge is transitioning to a full-time CTO and tech team, and that long-term goal needs to be at the forefront of everyone's mind

@ideasasylum four-time interim CTO here. I agree, which is why part of my responsibilities has always been expectation setting and coaching to non-tech founders. Since I consider myself both technical and "biz", I can relate to both sides of the coin. Also, a bit pedantic, but why is this called "as a service". It's literally "a service".
