Join Us

We are an exclusive CTO community of top-notch senior tech leaders. We’ll never grow our member base if it harms the quality and depth of discussions and knowledge exchange amongst our members. Thus, we need to put some serious rigor on our selection criteria and process.

As a CTO I find the accumulated knowledge of the network valuable. Decision-making and strategy becomes easier when you can learn from how people achieved the same thing in the past so you won’t repeat their mistakes.
