Red Corner was founded to disrupt fragmented, inefficient companies with a fractional Chief Technology Officer (CTO) that provides sustainable results.
Oshri Cohen, an experienced technologist, entrepreneur, and former tech executive established the company because of the misconstrued responsibilities of a CTO. A lack of common ground for what a CTO should be doing creates expensive bottlenecks for a growing company. Red Corner takes your existing engineering and technology departments and injects professionalism, innovative thinking, and accountability to grow your business.

After working at multiple startups and global corporations, Oshri recognized how inefficient most CTOs were. It wasn’t their fault as companies assume that they should be experts in all technologies and complete development work alongside leadership tasks. While a CTO is a senior leader, they shouldn’t be taking on everything. If they are, they’re getting less done.
Many tech professionals become CTOs because they’re senior software engineers and developers. However, Oshri says this is part of the industry’s issue. The role requires strong leadership skills, an interest in managing others, and very high technical skills. Companies assume that the last skill set is the most important. That leaves them with high-paid CTOs who aren't leveraging technology as a driver of business growth and profitability.
Red Corner addresses this problem by deploying one of its CTOs with at least 20 years of experience on a fractional basis. Instead of working full-time for an organization, Red Corner professionals have a clear objective to achieve in a short period.
Red Corner and its staff are solely focused on bringing value to clients, even if they must be assertive with their feedback. This is why Red Corner only works with clients who are eager and ready to make significant changes to their organization.
Oshri Cohen, Founder of Red Corner
Red Corner’s impartial positioning to fractional CTO services is rare among competitors that operate similarly to placement agencies. After sourcing and deploying fractional CTO talent, the executive receives no advisory support on how to provide value to clients. Oshri feels this strategy is isolating and counterintuitive for making organizational change. Therefore, Red Corner leverages its Council of CTOs to provide weekly support and enhanced efficiency. Clients aren’t charged more for the combined 200 years of experience that this council provides either, making it a win-win for Red Corner’s staff and clients.
The Council of CTOs are diversely talented individuals with general knowledge and multiple areas of technical expertise. Their presence enables fractional CTOs to overcome issues quickly through discussion-based problem-solving.
A main differentiator of Red Corner’s fractional CTO services is its three-phase process of enacting change. After identifying the main problems of an organization and drafting an action plan, Red Corner starts with foundational issues. An ineffective operational model, strategy, recurring technical issues, and staff misalignment are common examples. Once the fractional CTO ensures the development team is on track and that other parts of the business support these activities, Red Corner begins phase two. Evolving the organization by upskilling employees through workshops and hands-on coaching puts the foundational changes into place and evolves the business and technology overall. At the end of the evolution phase, most of the issues, problems, and frictions that the company was facing will have been eliminated. Lastly, Red Corner focuses on how to apply technology to improve business operations through the use of AI, automation, business intelligence, and software selections.
Red Corner is passionate about helping individual clients, but they strive to transform the entire landscape of tech and business through expert fractional CTO work.
