The 2010s were something. In a decade that saw the rise of smartphones, social media, blockchain, and artificial intelligence, startup boom was inevitable. Having worked with generations of trailblazing startups, we decided to kick off the new decade with our first report that we hope will serve as an insightful guide for the present heroes, and a digital time capsule for their followers.

  • The report explains why CTO as a service is a must for non-technical founders as well as early-stage startups.
