What is a Virtual CTO?

While building a technology startup, the need for a CTO is urgent. But for most founders, it is hard to fill in. The alternate solution is a Virtual or an On-demand CTO.

Virtual CTO is a cost-effective and time-effective solution to your CTO needs. A virtual CTO takes care of all CTO responsibilities like setting up the technology best practices, technology vision, resource

planning and so on. The best part of Virtual CTO is getting started with a CTO quickly without having to commit for long term.

The guy is a genius. Pravin is a thought leader and a technology guru. He not only brings technical expertise to the table but also wears a C-level hat - benefiting any project with cost savings and adding more value to business strategy. I highly recommend working with Pravin!

Jarric Ramos

Biz Dev at Google, Sales Recruiting at TheLions, Mentor at Flockjay

I have hired Pravin and Mindbowser twice now, once to fix an iOS app that another company did not have the skill or expertise to finish, and then again to develop a new app for me called Smart Goals. In both experiences, Pravin was great - easy to communicate with, quick to respond to emails, and always available on Skype or phone when needed. Both apps were accepted into the iTunes Store on the first try, and Pravin has given us very good post-launch support. I highly recommend Pravin and Mindbowser for iOS development needs.

Hokkun Pang

Software Architect at Allego

I had the pleasure of working with Pravin and his team to develop a complex mobile app on the iOS platform. Throughout the development process, Pravin and his team demonstrated strong dedication, creativity and collaboration. Pravin and his team had excellent iOS development skills and I appreciate their valuable service to our project.
