FAQ about MVP development for Startups

If you consider to create a new startup, there are many questions might arise in your mind about MVP software development. You can cross a few of them right now.

What Is the MVP Stage in a Startup?

MVP development services refers to the initial stage of creating the first workable (and saleable) version of your new business concept. It’s a concept that comes from a book called ‘The Lean Startup’ by Eric Reis and the basic principle is relatively simple.

Rather than putting huge amounts of time into creating a detailed business plan and painstakingly carving out and sculpting the perfect product, you should put that time into determining what the minimum requirements are to get a product out there in the marketplace – something people will use and eventually be prepared to pay for.

Why Outsource for MVP Development?

For any startup, MVP software development is the starting point to a 1000-mile product development journey. You have to do it only once, but it should be done right. You can build an MVP on your own. But, the process could be time-consuming and may not result in an ideal output.

Outsourcing MVP development could lead to better results since you have access to experts with experience and expertise. Also, it saves a lot of time and cost that is otherwise required to be spent for technical studies, consultation and decision-making. All these benefits put together makes it a smart move for startups to outsource outsource for MVP app development.

How Do You Build an MVP Application?

MVP development for startups is all about selecting “must-have features” taking into account functionality and user experience. Features that satisfy and bind your first customers. We save the rest for later, we focus on the essentials. More and more startups are choosing not to take the word “minimum” in minimum viable product too literally. They do not opt ​​for an MVP but an EVP, an Exceptional Viable Product. The goal is to immediately deliver a very impressive product at launch in order to accelerate growth by early adopters. This often concerns funded start-ups or corporate start-ups that do not have time for a small-scale start. Which variant you choose now; we believe that your software must be developed on a solid basis from the start so that after launch you can continue to develop quickly and be ready for exponential growth of your final product.

How Much Does It Cost To Make an Mvp App?

The tricky part is the MVP development for startups price differs, and depends on various factors. A freelancer would charge around $4,000 to $15,000 for an app prototype. If you hire a development company, the price usually starts from $20,000 depending on the scope of work. The constant here is, all estimates regarding an MVP price is based on an hourly rate. Design and functionality are the two integral aspects of an MVP development. You have to see how a user interface would eventually look like. Does it keep users engaged? Is it simple and eye-catching? Is the navigation sound? Customized gestures, buttons and transitions will cost you — it’s not at all cheap being beautiful.

Are MVPs Only For Startups?

The notion that MVP development services are reserved exclusively for startups is a common industry misconception. In reality, businesses with established products can use MVP too, though the application is a slightly different. Indeed, it is possible for even established businesses to use MVP. At a startup, like Dropbox, MVP is the company’s entire product. When Dropbox launched, it didn’t have many of the capabilities that it has today.

Or you might consider to outsource for MVP app development if you’re integrating something with your mature product, such as payment gateways or eSignature providers. There are many ways to integrate the concept of MVP, even if you’re not a startup.

From building MVP till a successful product

We have passed through many startups for the last 10 years and today we want to share this expertise with you to save your time and money and help you to hit the market with the right product.
