We’ve been lucky enough to work on a lot of projects and speak with a lot of founders.
You know what app founders tell us over and over that they wish they would have known before they started building?
Let’s be honest… app development is a total black box. It seems like coders, designers, and founders all speak a different language and it’s just hard as hell to find the right people you can trust with your idea.
Because the process is so complicated, most founders just jump in and decide to “will-power” their way through. They jump in with both feet, hire a dev, engage a team and start committing code. They refine their idea as they go.
Without a crystal clear vision of their project, it takes too many twists and turns — The target market gets a bit more specific, the features change, the development needs can’t keep up, and the project stalls out wasting valuable time or money.
Just like building a house, there is a very specific and time-tested process to building an app. (hint… it doesn’t start with hiring some random coder). We take app founders through this process so they avoid stalling out and running out of money and resources before they hit the finish line.
Just like building a house, there are a specific set of steps to follow and you need to solve each step in order.
You wouldn’t schedule your movers before you even broke ground right?
When you work with the right team and follow the right process, building your app doesn’t have to be confusing, scary, and mysterious.
And most importantly… LOTS of clarity around what you’re doing.
The bottom line: This helps you invest a small amount up front that will save you HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS later in your project.
A set of workshops and tests to prove that your end product will satisfy its stakeholder expectations when it’s done.
A finished design file with ALL of your app screens in a clickable version you hold in your hand. This demonstrates how your product will function.
A clear project plan that outlines the initiatives, features, and technical requirements in your engineering pipeline.
