Getting the most traction with the lowest cost

It is important to be building the right product the first time. There are multiple ways to build an app and to decide which one we're going to build should be based only on which one is going to get the most traction straight away with the lowest cost.

We need to find out what's the minimum we can do so that you can start getting users straight away because traction is the most important single factor to survive and/or raise additional funding. 

In this 5-week bootcamp, we will research and validate your startup idea and get it development and investment ready.

A proven track record

We've been around for 4 years and we have not seen a single startup fail yet - there isn't a single company we've worked with that is now gone. Moreover, our founding team have taken pivotal roles at many successful startups which have gone to raise £20m+ follow on rounds.

Our team has worked with clients in industries such as Agriculture, Fitness & Health, Retail, Recruitment, Advertising. Several of our clients have been featured on Apple App Store, Amazon Startups blog and Product hunt.

Accepting early-stage startup ideas/concepts

If you have an idea or a concept for a startup and you want to make sure to take all the right steps while on a tight budget as well as to give it a fair chance for success, validating your idea and preparing for development with our Startup Bootcamp is a smart and cost-effective way to do it right.

Startup Bootcamp

During the bootcamp, you'll find the necessary confidence to get your project started by specifying what the actual product is, who is the target audience and where the initial traction will come from as well as how much does it cost to build it and how to raise your next round.

These are the steps we're taking to have a very clear and defined product that we're going to be building:

  1. Discovery session;
  2. Product Market Research;
  3. Strategic Workshop;
  4. Detailed Technical product specification;
  5. Investor pitch deck review.

Once we've got this, then it's possible to start building the product and talking to investors. 

Case Study

Our client Triptalk came to us after building their initial MVP which they then found out was wrong. They built the product and it wasn't really what anyone wanted and they came to us and asked can you fix it? We told them to join our Startup Bootcamp and we ended up working together for 5 weeks - defining the product and all the details. By the end of it, the product was almost entirely different. Key concepts were the same, we were still in the same industry, but the revenue model was different, the way we're acquiring users was different, the B2B side of it was totally different and all of that was based on research we did together. 

A deeper look 

This is how to get from a startup idea to know exactly what the product is going to be:

1. Discovery session (2-3 hours)

During our initial discovery call, we shall introduce ourselves and discuss your product idea, concepts and approach to becoming investor-ready.

This would include:

  • Idea validation and brainstorming
  • Business modelling
  • Evaluating Target Market (B2C vs B2B)
  • Unique Value Proposition

2. Product Market Research

After the discovery session, our team will research / consolidate our thoughts and present them to you highlighting any pain points and potential success metrics. 

Result presentation

3. Strategic Workshop (4-5 hours)

At this point, we have a solid understanding of your product and where to best position it for optimal chances of success. This longer workshop aims to help you figure out how best to build a short term plan to build your MVP product that can reach your success metrics whatever they may be (Downloads, Sign-ups, Sales, Investment Capital)

This would involve:

  • Product road-mapping
  • Understanding Revenue streams
  • Budget allocation (Marketing, Technology, Sales)
  • Competitive Analysis
  • LEAN Canvas
  • Model personas

4. Detailed Technical product specification

Once we have settled on the product strategy, our technical team will put together a full technical specification. In this specification, we would outline the software architecture, server infrastructure and detail out user stories for all features of your product. Moreover, we would include a testing plan and a set of deliverables for the product. Ultimately, this would allow you to receive a highly accurate quotation from any development team, including our own.

5. Investor pitch deck review *Optional

If you already have a pitch deck, we would be happy to review this and advise on some potential improvements. From our prior experience, we have seen many good and bad pitch decks and can suggest how you can optimise the presentation to achieve the funding you are looking for.

Benefits for partnering with Tech Alchemy

Very often startups fail because they make assumptions and start with design and development straight away. The gap between their idea and development is massive because there is no way the developer can understand what you're trying to build as well as you are. So the developers are building what they think the product should be, you're building what you think it should be, or the developer is building exactly what you think the product should be today which you decide is wrong in two months time. That's why we always advice to go through the Startup Bootcamp first. 

Validate things before committing more time and resources. The product we're building isn't going to be right for everyone but we'll have the answer why we're building this right now and not something else. In our roadmaps, we go deep into why we're building things the way we are.

  • We deliver experience from 1000s of startups we've seen;
  • We understand what a “tight budget” means;
  • We improve your chances to raise additional funding;
  • We reduce your risk of failure;
  • You're not tied to Tech Alchemy and can continue with design/development anywhere you want;
  • With us you start by building only what's important for early traction;
  • We do it right the first time by researching and modelling options;
  • A data-driven approach for finding the right business model;
  • You'll be able to plan and develop the product even without CTO;
  • After the Startup Bootcamp, we can continue working on design and development together;
  • Often we become a long-term tech partner for startups we work with.

Once we've got the results from the Startup Bootcamp, we are able to proceed to design. And when we're designing the product, then we can turn those designs in development stories. Most of our development is design-driven development, we're converting designs into basic stories to be able to give you a quote to build the MVP.

We can work with only a few projects at a time and our spots are being fully reserved often. Make sure to book it right now while there is availability.
