MVP Development for Startups

MVP Development for Startups

As a trusted provider of MVP development services for startups, MVPDevelopmentTeam will assist you in creating a minimum viable product that accurately represents your business idea and gathers valuable feedback for further development of your future product to make it a better product market fit.

By developing a basic version of your product with just enough core features and testing it with its target market, you get to learn more about what early adopters like, what works and what doesn’t, and how you can better adjust your product to align with market demand.

MVP vs Proof of Concept vs Prototype

What is the difference between an MVP, a proof of concept, and a prototype?

A minimum viable product or a minimum marketable product is a version of your app that contains just enough features to attract initial customers and gather user feedback. You can think of it as a starting point of your product development journey that tells you if your app delivers a great customer experience or not.

A proof of concept is anything that helps you test the feasibility of your product idea internally before you begin the minimum viable product development process, such as demos of your product, case studies, market research, and more.

A prototype is a preliminary model or sample of your product that demonstrates how your concept works, so unlike an MVP, initial customers aren’t meant to try it out. 

As a startup founder looking to validate your idea and secure funding for it, an MVP will benefit you the most. This is because not all concepts can be monetized, and neither the proof of concept nor the prototype can be released to your target audience to assess whether it has solid market potential. In contrast, building an MVP and launching it to your target audience allows you to enter the market earlier, collect customer feedback, and quickly perform market validation.

What We Can Do for a Startup

From first-time to serial entrepreneurs, we design our startup MVP development services to help everyone refine their idea into a scalable and market-worthy product.

Discovery Phase Consulting

1
We understand the level of assumptions you may have as a startup founder. So, during this initial stage of the MVP development process, our startup MVP agency will work with you to clarify your business objectives, perform thorough market research, and uncover the market needs of potential users. By the time we're done, our product team will have identified a unique value proposition for your software and the essential features you need to offer to build a minimum viable product that satisfies your target market.

Proof of Concept Development

2
Is there nothing similar to your idea on the market? Or do you have little to no experience concerning the development of your app? Don't worry. As an end-to-end MVP development company, we will brainstorm your idea to develop a convincing proof of concept that validates your product purpose, from surveys to user experience demos, blueprints, case studies, and more.

MVP Software Design

3
After rounding up the market research, concluding the proof of concept development phase, and deciding what MVP features to implement, our development team will construct the look and visual structure of your minimum viable product, taking into consideration an ideal user flow and navigation and including the icons, colors, fonts, and animations that align with your brand kit.

Clickable Prototype Development

4
Once our UI/UX designers are done creating the user flow and visual representation of your minimum viable product MVP, we'll build a light prototype that you can interact with before we proceed to code the full-fledged app. We never skip this part of the MVP development process so you can test how the application will work yourself and demonstrate to investors and testers all the features included in this basic version of your successful MVP.

MVP Development

5
When you approve the clickable prototype, our software developers will choose an appropriate technology stack and proceed to build a minimum viable product into functional code. Following agile methodology at this stage of the MVP development process, we also subject each unit of completed software against several automated and manual tests to find defects early and validate the basic features of your minimum viable product before it gets into the hands of potential customers.

MVP Launch

6
Once we're done building the minimum viable product and it's ready for release, we'll set up accounts on your chosen app stores, upload descriptions and visual content, and then publish the application. With dozens of successful MVPs under our belt, we're familiar with the content, privacy, and security rules of iOS, Android, and desktop devices and their operating systems, so we can guarantee your app will go live no matter what.

MVP Support

7
At this point, your app store accounts are set up and your successful MVP is released to the potential customers. But our services don't end at launch. We remain in close contact with your startup to address bugs and implement new MVP features in response to user feedback from early adopters. As your startup's software partner, we will guide you hand in hand through scaling strategies to ensure sustained growth for your product and business.

How Startups Benefit from an MVP

MVP Development for Startups

Testing the Idea

With an MVP, startups, medium-scale companies, and enterprise-level businesses can validate ideas, test their assumptions, and iterate based on feedback. As a result, it's never been easier to accurately judge whether your product has enough potential to generate conversions, garner a community, and stand out against applications your competitors offer.

Collecting Feedback

When building an MVP for startups, the ultimate checklist to follow is your active users' preferences. In regards to this principle, an MVP enables you to collect feedback from user groups concerning the kinds of core features they want to see in your future product, how they can be refined, and how much your application solves their main problem.

Scalability Opportunities

MVP product development enhances your scalability opportunities by helping you better understand the market you are trying to enter. When testing your app with real users, you learn more about their market needs and pain points, and using that knowledge, you're able to improve the product in the right direction and make it more appealing to users. How is this relevant to scaling? Well, without this product architecture, scalability is not feasible. It's a fact that 74% of all startups fail because they scale prematurely.

Saving Money and Time

By building only the most essential features in your MVP, you don't have to spend as much time and money as it would cost to develop a feature-packed product. These cost savings are particularly useful for startups because more often than not, you're bootstrapping your business with personal funding or borrowed capital.

Attracting Investors

Before putting their money into startups, investors want to see that you have a value proposition and viable product that solves a problem. An MVP comes in handy here because it demonstrates that you aren't just offering a concept but rather an established base product with core features. So, when presented right, MVPs also attract the right kind of investors who can infuse capital to scale your business.
