i want an MVP...
If you are in the startup circle, this is the buzzword around town. MVP is a minimal viable product.
The definition varies every year.
In 2018-19 it was a pitch deck and an ugly-looking proof of concept with a few screens. Fast forward to 2023, it's a fully functional native-developed app for iOS and Android with active users and, most importantly, paying customers.
mvp and all things you should familiarise yourself with
Identify the problem you want to solve: Before you build your MVP, you must identify the problem you want to solve for your target audience. Conduct market research and talk to potential customers to understand their pain points and needs. This will help in developing a "target audience".
Develop a prototype: Create a simple prototype that demonstrates your core features. Product Design and User flows are the stepping stones in creating a prototype. This helps validate your idea in the market. This allows startups to get feedback from potential customers and improve before investing more resources.
Determine the core features: Once you have identified the problem and target audience, determine the core features for your MVP. Focus on building only the most important features and avoid feature bloat. We use MoSCoW prioritization.
Test and iterate: Helping you with a roadmap for the launch plan. The DATA from your launch is market validation that will help you gain traction with investors. It is not the product you are selling, it's the customers you can attract that will get in the investment door.
if you have tested prototypes with real users, let DATA be the source of truth for the future of your digital product...
