Crafty CTO is the brainchild of Jack Ivers, whose decades of technology experience includes multiple stints as CTO; founding, growing, and successfully exiting two technology startups; and most recently, at TechCXO and now Crafty CTO, helping tech businesses drive their growth and success as their fractional and interim CTO.

Aside from his deep and wide tech expertise, Jack’s superpower is maintaining a sense of urgency when it comes to our client’s technology initiatives. While we don’t agree with everything Paul Graham says, we wholeheartedly endorse this nugget:

Launch fast. The reason to launch fast is not so much that it’s critical to get your product to market early, but that you haven’t really started working on it till you’ve launched. Launching teaches you what you should have been building. Till you know that you’re wasting your time. So the main value of whatever you launch with is as a pretext for engaging users.

While Graham wrote this in the context of early stage startups, we believe this thinking applies much more broadly across of wide range of tech work. Besides learning “what you should have been building,” our sense of urgency helps keep your tech project costs under control.
