Exec / C-level startup coaches do exist, they tend to be pretty pricey though. I had a chance to chat with https://www.reboot.io/ a while back, they seem to be a good place to start. We tried putting together a CTO meetup here in SF several times, but it's worse than herding cats, everybody is super heads-down in the work 24/7.

Thanks for the share, I will look into it. I wonder if their isn't as large of a demand for this type of support system in SF? Everyone seems very connected, has a VC network and may even have a seed-operated Alumni network and mailing list. I agree, they probably have their head down and are building their product. As they should. When they come up for air though they probably have a half-dozen mentors at their disposal. I'm not sure, that of course is all conjecture :)

There's definitely CTO school in NYC, because we've mimicked it here in Melbourne, Australia[1]. I'd be surprised if there wasn't one for SF.

[1] And it's from whence I was first shown this article... :-)
