I started Strides because of a huge gap that needed to be filled…
Hey! I’m Austin Betzer 👋
Founders and developers essentially speak different languages… Which makes it REALLY hard for founders to get the right people on board their project in a meaningful way. I started Strides so that founders and developers could work hand-in-hand — towards the same goals and get way more done in way less time.

DIRECTOR OF CLIENT OPERATIONS
The most important aspect of software development projects isn’t programming, it's communication. Let's talk.
Can you build my app idea?
We never like to make promises or guarantees without talking, but we’ve rarely seen an idea that we can’t build! That being said, we do specialize in “general development” as opposed to “specialty development.” Specialty development refers to much more complicated features like gaming, augmented reality, etc.
What is the typical cost and how long does it take?
This is the question we hear the most… “My idea is ____. How much would that cost?” Before we can give you any realistic ideas on budget and timeline, we need to learn more about your project. Schedule a free Strategy Call with us and let’s talk!
Do I need a separate app for iPhone and Android?
It is important to know that building an app for one platform doesn’t mean that you can just change a few lines of code and launch that app on another platform. Every platform uses their own language, so your app will need to be written in multiple languages if you want it to work on iPhone, Android, and a desktop computer. Lucky for you, we can help you make this happen!
Can you take over an existing project or app?
If you have an existing app, or a partially completed app, we’d have to get under the hood and see what things look like before committing to taking on your project. What we’re looking for is clean code with documentation and not too many bugs and rabbit holes. If you’ve worked with a good developer, chances are we can pick up where they left off. If your developer cut corners you might be looking at a total rebuild.
How do I know if Strides is the right fit for me and my company?
The short answer, is let’s get on a Strategy Call and see if we’re a fit! The long answer is that our favorite clients to work with are founders and teams who have a really great idea but don’t have any of the team in place to make it happen. We love working AS your development team and taking your project from idea to reality.
