CTO as a Service - Case study

The client, a young breakaway company in the financial services sector had a unique idea for a new mobile app. The team had clearly documented what they wanted to achieve but were unclear whether they wanted to build the app internally or outsource app development. The client needed an interim CTO who could help them develop a minimum viable product (MVP), create a financial model projecting income and expenses, set up the necessary infrastructure and advise on whether they should outsource or build inhouse.
