Great thoughts! I would also like to mention that there are actually two leading types of the CTO in a software company - operational management and technical leadership. When it comes to a first type, these specialists usually don't have considerable coding background. However, such CTOs may have studied project management, finance, mentoring, and other skills that are non-technical. And there is a second type - technical leadership. In this case, these specialists have a huge background in providing software development services. This role of a CTO is a perfect fit for a tech startup.
