We strategically partner with clients in their innovation initiatives, offering expertise, flexibility, cost-effectiveness, and an independent perspective crucial for innovation development. As a strategic partner, Nadeau Innovations supports both corporate innovation and startups in their technology development journey. Leverage the expertise and experience of a seasoned technology professional without the expense and commitment of a full-time hire.

Corporate Innovation

As businesses face increasing competition and rapid technology advances, corporate innovation becomes essential. Fractional CTO services provide technical guidance and leadership for established companies to tap into new markets, stay relevant, and foster an agile innovation and experimentation culture.


Startups encounter unique challenges during early growth and development stages. A fractional CTO provides guidance and support in product development, technology strategy, team management, and fundraising. As a hands-on leader, they execute the company’s vision and mission, guiding the engineering organization to deliver innovative products. They work seamlessly with existing leadership and teams, adapting between tactical and strategic approaches.

How We Work

We offer three customizable packages for our fractional CTO services:

  1. Innovate: Empower your team with flexible expertise and strategic advising through a bank of hours retainer.
  2. Execute: Enable agile projects, development, and operations with consistent weekly sessions at a flat monthly rate.
  3. Accelerate: Embed support as part of your team to boost performance and achieve milestones at an hourly rate (minimum commitment of 32 hours per month).

Non-retainer packages start with a three-month commitment, then switch to month-to-month with a 30-day notice for pauses or cancellations.
