How I can help you
I wish there were a one-size-fits-all approach, but there isn’t.
Sometimes it's an engineering problem. Sometimes it's a product problem. Or it’s an issue with the go-to-market strategy, messaging, or sales pipeline.
In some cases, you need to structure more; in others, you need to simplify. One day you’re too fast; another, you’re too slow.
Or the talent of your team doesn’t shine yet.
It's often a judgement call. And how you do things.
My 25 years in the industry inform each of my decisions.
I ground my thinking on achievements across multiple sectors, stages, and platforms, with deep expertise in technology, product, and management. And I am mindful of the rest, like fundraising, marketing, sales, and finance.
Below are some ways we can work together. If you’re not sure if I can help you, just reach out 😉
WAYS WE CAN WORK TOGETHER
You want expert advice backed by results. It could be strategic, for example, on a core technical decision. Or tactical, like validating your product hypothesis. Or operational, such as optimising your hiring processes.
Whether navigating early stages, scaling up, or becoming a household name, I provide an actionable, end-to-end perspective rigorously refined in the real world.
Workshops are fun! They foster team bonding in practical and highly effective ways. A few examples: “CEO for a day” to align on quarterly objectives. “The Great Microservice Bake-Off” for the best service boundaries ever. Or the all-time favourite — the hackathon.
Whatever you need, I’ve got a workshop for you.
Fractional CTO / CTO-as-a-Service ✨
Imagine ordering CTO work à la carte: a roadmap and some org design with a bit of microservice architecture on the side. Jokes aside, it’s about elevating your team.
Receive the expertise and capabilities of a full-time CTO without the associated level of salary and benefits. What a treat.
Interim CTO 🧞
You need a CTO for a limited time. I can jump in, usually for 3-6 months. We agree on what needs to be done, and I execute. And we regularly re-align and adjust where necessary. This option is ideal when you can’t wait six months for a full-time CTO.
You can get an expert operator running the tech show during transitions or unexpected CTO/technical founder departures.

Head of Engineering
Working with Edoardo was a great experience. [...] We were a somewhat scattered engineering team when he joined and by the time he left we were focused and with the right guide rails in place to be able to grow.
"Extra special thanks to Edoardo Turelli and all the team [...], who have somehow unlocked the secret of having the right people working on the right problems in the right way."
