Let’s Get Started

A lot of people have great ideas for apps or software but just don’t know how to get started. If you don’t code or have a tech savvy business partner, it can be hard to figure out the process. Unfortunately, a lot of software development companies take advantage of people in this situation. That’s why we started YourCTO – to provide affordable, dependable and trustworthy software development. We want to help make your idea a reality.

Services we Offer

YourCTO Startup Launch Kit

The perfect low-cost, no-risk way to start your journey. Includes: a downloadable demo of your app, a detailed technology blueprint, and a stunning website.  This package is ideal for people who are looking to validate their idea and raise money.  All clients get a $3,500 discount on their first app development.

Mobile Applications

We develop native Android and iPhone apps, as well as hybrid (both Android and iPhone) mobile applications. We can take you through the entire process including ideation, development, design, testing, and placement in online app stores so that users can download your app directly.

MVP Development

Oftentimes, the best place to start is by building a Minimal Viable Product, or MVP. This is a barebones version of the software that will look good, include the key functionalities you want, and be ready to get to users so that you can test assumptions and features before investing in a larger scale development.

Business Idea Boost

Having a great business and marketing plan is incredibly important to the success of your app or software.  That’s why we’ve partnered with C-level specialists to provide our clients with expert feedback on the business potential of their idea, competition research, and a custom marketing plan.

How we Work

We want to help realize your ideas, regardless of your level of technical expertise. We'll work closely with you to develop a plan that meets your specific needs. We’ll handle all technology matters, from design to app store placement, so you can focus on growing your business. You don't need a technical co-founder, we'll be your CTO!

About Icon

Why we started YourCTO

We started YourCTO because one of our founders faced the exact same problem many do – having a great idea for a software product but not having extensive funding or the ability to code. He tried a bunch of options – from freelancer platforms to outsourcing, but had little luck until meeting a great software developer with a passion for building people’s ideas. They decided to team up to make cool products, and now want to do the same for as many people as possible.

Honest, Affordable, and Transparent Pricing

A recent study requested price quotes from 49 software development companies for a simple mobile app. The average quote was over $93,000, which is way too much for most people to afford. Our average price range is only $8,500 - $13,000, 89% less. We’re not in this to maximize profits, we’re in it to help. Every project is different, and our goal is to find a solution that meets your budget and timeline.
