CTO as a Service
Hidden Founders is a group of developers, product hackers, and startup enthusiasts, who build your Tech Product on a bootstrap-friendly payment plan. The selected startups on the batch get to build their Product with an experienced tech team on a tailored leasing contract.
We founded Hidden Founders back in 2013 when we reflected on how the startup hype was reshaping entrepreneurial landscapes everywhere, and on how we wanted to be part of this momentum. We started out first as a development agency specializing in MVP development but pivoted quickly to offer a model that fit our target better.
Hidden Founders model: The Quest for the Really-cheap-but-also-really-good.
The model we developed for Hidden Founders is a package of technical services and startup-savvy business experience with a bootstrap-friendly payment plan. We reduce the financial burden on the startups.
We also help our first-time founders by connecting them with mentors and offering business assistance during Office Hours.
Why Founders like us
Hidden Founders provides very definite advantages to its founders:
- Founders can have a Product on the market and start getting traction early, making future negotiations –with investors or CTOs, for instance- easier. If the product fails, it fails faster and at lesser costs.
- Founders have access to technical talent with a solid startup experience and business mentors with a proven track record in the startup scene.
- The shared risk reassures the founders on the fact that we will be committed to the project.
