In the present day, technology is everything. Gone are the days we relied on a brick-and-mortar business and manual systems to run a business. Without technology, you will have minimal chances of success and push through the stiff competition in the market. Some business automation is easy, but as your company grows, you need a dedicated team member to handle all your IT requirements. Such a person is a CTO. 

A chief technology officer (CTO) is a top executive overseeing the entire information technology department and integrating business needs and requirements into IT planning and operations. Join this conversation with Bill Boulden as we talk all about taking your business to the next level with technology.

Bill Boulden is a serial tech startup CTO focusing on bringing products from the idea phase to launch. In this podcast episode, we talk all about how to find a CTO, what a CTO does, and how to take your idea into a healthcare startup.

Notable Quotes

  • For anyone starting a business, technology is a key consideration. Sadly, very few can hire the right person to manage their business technology. [01:10]
  • If you are starting something out, a fractional CTO is what you should think of more than a software developer or a full-time CTO. [11:22]
  • Don’t let your seven-figure dream be based on someone else’s weak-end project. [12:36]
  • It’s hard to tell before you build an app that nobody is going to come. Therefore always tier yourself to pre-prove the idea before building the app. [25:11]
