Hey I'm Stephan. I'm your CTO coach.

I help you grow as CTO.



"Everyone needs a coach."
Bill Gates

Everyone becomes better with coaching. You will become better with coaching

After decades as a tech manager, I’ve decided to share my knowledge and help others grow faster and not make the same mistakes I made.

I’ve seen a lot of things from large enterprise to small startups, from exponential growth to layoffs. I’ve learned some things working at ImmobilienScout24 and for eBay. I founded my own startups and helped my wife grow and sell hers.


"I have coached many CTOs in thousands of sessions. I've seen many things and helped many CTOs. I can help you too."
