What is a Fractional CPO?

A "Fractional Chief x Officer" is an experienced professional who offers their expertise on a part-time or project basis. This model is particularly beneficial for companies that might not require or have the budget for a full-time executive. It's a trend I've seen gaining momentum, especially among startups and SMBs that need strategic direction without the financial burden of a full-time executive.


At People for DAOs, I've collaborated with CEOs, offering advisory, strategic leadership, and HR guidance. My contributions range from formulating people strategies for profitability and growth to enhancing HR functions through coaching and mentoring.

Business Use Cases

  • Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs): I've assisted teams in critically evaluating Token Plan offerings, especially concerning allocations from a Token Reserve budget.

  • Startups: Many startups I've worked with lack the resources for a full-time CPO. I provide expertise in HR strategy, talent acquisition, and culture development.

  • SMBs: I offer guidance to SMBs facing challenges in scaling, retention, or organizational development.

Benefits of a Fractional CPO/Project Expert

  • Companies in Transition: My expertise has proven invaluable to businesses undergoing significant transformations like mergers or acquisitions.

  • Cost-Effective: Hiring me as a Fractional CPO is a budget-friendly alternative to a full-time executive.

  • Flexibility: I offer engagements that can range from short-term projects to longer commitments, ensuring adaptability to client needs.

  • Expertise: Clients benefit from my extensive experience across various industries.

Possible Engagement Models

  • Retainer Model: You can retain me for a consistent set of hours or days each month, ensuring continuity.

  • Project-Based Model: I can be engaged for specific projects with a pre-agreed fee.

  • Hybrid Model: This is a mix of retainer and project-based engagements.

  • Equity-Based Model: I am open to equity-based compensation, aligning my interests with the company's long-term vision.
