OUR CORE startup development SERVICES

Research and risk assessment

We have the necessary expert knowledge and R&D facilities to assess the business potential of your idea and create a Proof of Concept. The aim of this in-depth analysis is to foresee any roadblocks and risks to prevent and minimize them by designing an effective strategy. We create an MVP for our clients within the shortest possible time to test it with the target audience and make all the necessary adjustments and changes on time.

Full-Cycle software development

We offer comprehensive software development services for startups from various industries - Energy, Oil & Gas, Biotechnology, Healthcare, Machinery, Budgeting & Accounting, Hospitality, Industrial Automation, etc. The initial Discovery Phase helps us understand all the aspects of the product. Then our competent Product Manager creates a realistic product roadmap with technology requirements. After the client’s approval, we move to the software development stage to bring the product to market.

Team growth

No waste of precious time on hiring and training new employees - you can easily expand your in-house technology stack with our dedicated development team. We offer outsourcing and out-staffing cooperation models: manage your remote employees directly or delegate all roles and responsibility to us, including project management. After your product is launched successfully, you can further increase your team to support the growth of the project.

We identify user persona, prepare the wireframes, prepare pixel perfect visual mockups, a document that details the use cases, high level architecture, implementation roadmap, milestones and planning.



We develop test builds with intermediate milestones and releases to get feedback from stakeholders, functional integration, usability testing, and analytics integration.
