In essence my question is: is a CTO supposed to provide the company vision and business strategy?
I am bringing into a startup the following: vision, business strrategy, technology strategy/roadmap and initial critical engineering staff. I am being offered the job as CTO (my proposed title). The founding CEO & President is bringing the funding, and will be in charge of accounting, facilities and overall day-to-day operations.
It is me, not him, bringing vision, business strategy, initial customers and potential contacts for the near future.
I am proposing that my title be CTO and VP of Strategy. He is saying I will be the CTO, and my job descruiption includes Strategy, Vision, Technology Implementation, Deployment of product and Business Development.
Is he or is he not trying to lowball me? I feel I deserve more. Please help!
