Varun Gupta

Sr. Front-End Developer at Code Brew Labs

My cofounders and I (there are 3 of us) have been working on an app for about a year now that helps university students study. We have an MVP and some initial friends & family capital but nothing major.

Our backgrounds are in finance, engineering, and marketing/sales. At this point we want to raise a real round of financing to take things to the next level from a team and product perspective. We’re in agreement that before we do that, we need to decide on titles, so investors take us seriously. We each contribute different amounts of work, expertise, and money.

What should we be considering when we decide who is CEO? What are the other titles we should consider for the non-CEO founders? Does the technical person definitely need to be CTO?
