Are you 100% sure what problem you're solving?

discovery stage
A project that is not based on data and research is destined to fail.
As a start-up owner and entrepreneur, you are willing to give your project anything it takes. You are determined to succeed and do some good.
But that is just not enough. If you don't start you project in the right way, you will be destined to fail in the future.
That's why we won't let you do that. We will build on a comprehensive reseach and data gathered in the discovery stage. We will make your MVP a success.
If you cheat the discover stage,
whis will happen:
Skiping the discovery stage was never a goof idea. Many start-ups could tell. Maybe this already sounds familiar?
Stuck in the design and prototyping stage
There is nothing wrong with iterating on your idea but it mustn't stop your project. Don't do discovery while you're working on the design.
Drowning in the development costs
You will find out what you've missed later. If you have to redo your development work, you can easily kill your project.
Being affraid to receive feedback
If you base your project on data and research, you don't have to be scared of launch and feedback - at least not that much.

Questions our clients truly frequently ask
I have made up my mind. Can I skip the discovery stage?
This is, of course, entirely up to you. On the other hand, we always encourage our clients to do the discovery stage properly. If you have already passed this stage, we will just check your resources and give you feedback.
Can I do the discovery stage without your help?
Yes, you can. We are happy to guide you if you want to do most of the work by yourself. We will always check the outcomes of the discovery and tell you if there's anything to add.
Do I have to commit to the whole project to do discovery stage with you?
Not at all. We are happy to help you with your discovery, if that is where you need help. There is no need to sign up for the whole project. That being said, we are of course happy to support you during the design and development stage.
How long does the discovery stage typically takes?
The lenght of the discovery stage depends on the complexity of the project. It would range from just a few days to a month.
