Startup development services

Proof of concept

Build a proof of concept to quickly validate an application idea and demonstrate it to potential investors. The experts at Altoros also help startups to evaluate various architectural approaches and select the optimal path for future development.

Minimum viable product

A minimum viable product (MVP) enables you to get early feedback from real users and adjust development goals accordingly. We facilitate prototyping and MVP development, helping you to assess the demand for your app, gain valuable insights, and determine areas for improvement. Employing the Agile methodology, our team reduces development cycles from months to weeks—in some cases, iterations can be done in days.

Product design

With a deep understanding of the iterative design approach, we can quickly adapt to evolving business needs and make timely improvements based on test results or user reviews. Altoros has experience in delivering enterprise-grade solutions for media, telecommunication, logistics, finance, oil and gas, real estate, as well as other industries.

Data-driven roadmap

Our experts deliver a prioritized list of development tasks and a detailed project roadmap. We utilize a weighted scoring method to accurately assess the business value and risks associated with each application component, helping startups to achieve maximum results in the shortest possible time frame.

Advisory and consulting

We have a proven track record of partnering with startups that were on the way to becoming unicorn companies. Altoros offers qualified specialists with strong software development expertise to turn your ideas into successful products. We will review the existing solution, identify bottlenecks, outline opportunities for improvement, and deliver an optimization plan.

Development stages

Prototyping (1–3 weeks)
We start by communicating with the customer to gain an in-depth understanding of the application’s goals, design, and possible functionality. Afterward, our team builds an interactive prototype to validate the chosen technologies and approaches for a specific use case. We also provide architectural recommendations to avoid costly fixes at the later stages.
MVP (1–3 months)
The second stage involves creating a minimum viable product that includes all the main functionality of the application. We use the MVP to gauge market demand for the app's core features and utilize feedback from real users to drive further development decisions.
Commercial product (3–6 months)
Having an established idea of the design and feature set, we start working on the production version of the app. You will get full control over the development and release timelines. Our dedicated teams use reporting, task monitoring, and tracking tools to anticipate risks and meet deadlines.
We turn your ideas into user-centered products ready for release.
