"I need a leader who can spend 25% of their time on critical strategy, planning, and leadership work and 75% of their time spent tactically" We hear this a lot. We've found that fractional leadership is often the right choice.

With our Fractional Executive Practice, we connect our qualified and curated roster of fractional leaders with startups and scaleups that have very specific needs. Our team has spent 25+ years building relationships with tech leaders who have experience tackling critical finance, HR, go-to-market, and tech challenges. Contact us to learn more about how to add a fractional leader to your team, or to become part of our Fractional Exec Roster!
