We offer three different types of engagement options for when you need to outsource software development for startups.

Fixed-Scope Fixed-Price

This option works well where projects requirements are crystal clear from the start. We can have an in-depth discussion about the project’s total cost depending on exactly what features you want to see in your software product and when you want the project to be delivered.

Dedicated Development Team

This model assigns you a dedicated software development team. The team roles may include project manager, UI/UX designers, software developers, and QA engineers, who will work closely with you throughout the long-term engagement. You can scale the team up or down depending on changing requirements.

Time and Materials

If the amount of development work envisioned is small but not very well-defined, choose this model. The engagement is split into smaller fixed-cost/fixed-time phases. You decide the budget for the upcoming phases depending on the time spent and cost incurred in the preceding phases.

You can also opt for a hybrid model for better resource and cost management. You are assigned a dedicated team for core development activities. The fixed-price or time-and-materials option can work for one-off tasks. Find out more about our engagement models here.

Frequently Asked Questions

We work with companies of all sizes and do not exclude any startups merely on the basis of the number of employees or owners. In fact, we have worked with over 110 new businesses over the years, some of whom have grown tremendously.

A successful MVP launch can be followed with more phases of development, including other important features based on users’ input. Suppementary phases can be added as and when needed according to the startup’s requirements.
You are the sole owner of your project. We do not own it at any stage of the development process. We are here to merely help bring your app idea to life.
A minimum viable product is a simpler version of your product that is built with all the core functionalities and features. An MVP is developed and launched as the first phase of development to test out your product in the market.

It determines the potential of your ideas and helps attract investors and partners early on. This significantly reduces your risks and chances of failure and helps develop a final product that meets the market expectations and provides maximum value to the customers.
