OUR CORE startup development SERVICES


Research and risk assessment

We have the necessary knowledge and skillset 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

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.

Startup development model


We perform workshops in order to understand the product objectives, value proposition, intended target audience and expected user flows. We also identify the must-haves to create an MVP, understand the go-to-market strategy, business model and monetization.

Proof of concert

We identify potential technical challenges and bottlenecks, if any, conduct a feasibility study, and build a POC to ensure we choose the right technology strategy.


We launch an MVP to get your product to market and engage the early adopters. While MVP is launched and in use, we work on getting feedback from real end users to identify all areas of improvement.

Next releases

While you are working with your customers/end users on MVP feedback, our team continues working on next releases and new functionality development, so that the product you initially had on your mind is delivered in its full scope.

Build a Startup MVP with Blackthorn Vision

Timing is often critical for business success. We use Lean Startup Methodology to create an MVP as soon as possible. With this approach, our clients can continuously test and improve the product while it is ready to be presented to investors and early users.
