What is the Startup Sprint?

A Startup Sprint is the fastest way to get the right product into development, first time.

Creating a digital product can be expensive and time-consuming. A Startup Sprint is a process that helps us answer important questions about your project before investing development time.

De-risk your product by battle-testing it before diving into development. Create every screen, every workflow, every exception and every transition and animation before a line of code is written.

Development is incredibly expensive and time consuming. Don't just build a good product. Build the right product first time.

What is the outcome of the Startup Sprint?

The outcome of every Startup Sprint is everything that a developer needs in order to begin development. This includes an interactive prototype tested by real people, production-ready assets, and the original design file.

Your prototype will look and feel like a real product.

Design files (in Figma or Sketch)
Production-ready assets in PNG and SVG
Documentation of the initial research results
A high-fidelity interactive prototype, tested by real users (incl. design files and access to user test videos).
An in-depth, detailed executive summary PDF with the findings and results and recommendations on how to proceed

What happens after a Startup Sprint?

Once the Design Sprint is over, making decisions becomes a lot easier. You will have a realistic high fidelity prototype of your product and insights from real people.

Use a second follow-up sprint to integrate user feedback, iterate and deliver something production-ready. If you’re going straight into production, we’ll arrange a day to handover with you team, ensuring everyone has what they need to execute the plan.
