Efficiently build tech without the equity and expense

Technical cofounder

Finding technical cofounders these days is hard, and when you do find one, the quality can be an issue. At Gaussian, one of our former CTOs can act as technical cofounder, driving not only the design but also the development and infrastructure management, for clients who are looking for the most nimble and cost-effective solution (and one that doesn't dilute precious equity). We use industry-standard platforms like AWS to minimize cost, boost security and compliance, and make it dead easy to hand everything over to you in minutes, if you need to move to an in-house team later. We focus on keeping lean and in the cloud.
