What is an MVP?
An MVP, or Minimum Viable Product, is a product with essential features to gain early adopters and collect valuable feedback for future development. The goal of an MVP is to validate the product concept with real customers in a cost-effective and timely manner before investing in a full-fledged product. Startups and businesses can refine their products by gathering feedback from early adopters and making informed decisions on what features to add in future iterations. In short, an MVP is a strategy for testing and refining a product concept quickly with real customers before committing significant resources to full product development.
When is a good time to develop an MVP?
An MVP is essential for businesses in the early stages of product development to validate the product concept with customers and gather feedback. It’s ideal for testing new product ideas, validating the business model, securing funding, reducing development time and costs, and minimizing risk.
However, building an MVP should be based on the business’s needs, goals, and resources. Some businesses may skip the MVP stage and launch a full product, while others may use multiple MVPs to test various aspects of their product and business model.
MVP development process: How to build an MVP
To create an MVP, start with a Design Sprint to validate your idea and determine the essential features. Follow these steps:
An MVP should be built within 3 to 4 months to learn from users quickly. The cost of an MVP can range from $40k to $100k, depending on the project’s scope and complexity. The price can vary based on factors like the type of product, number of features, scalability, and desired level of polish.
Benefits of an
MVP vs. Prototype
An MVP allows you to test your product with real customers and receive valuable feedback. A prototype is just a proof-of-concept and doesn’t necessarily involve customer input.
An MVP is a way to validate your product concept and business model, while a prototype is just a preliminary product version.
An MVP has enough features to demonstrate value and can be marketed to early adopters, while a prototype is not yet marketable.
An MVP requires less investment than a full-fledged product and can help secure funding based on early traction, while a prototype typically requires more resources to develop.
An MVP can be developed and launched more quickly than a full-fledged product, allowing you to market faster, while a prototype may take longer to develop.
An MVP allows you to focus on the core features and value proposition, while a prototype may include features that are not necessary for the MVP stage.
An MVP is more flexible and can be easily iterated based on customer feedback, while a prototype may be more rigid and difficult to change.

Validating an MVP involves testing its core functionality and value proposition with early users to determine if it solves a real problem and if there is demand.
Also by validating your MVP, you can increase your chances of success and avoid wasting resources on a product that doesn’t solve a real problem. Here are the basic steps:
The specific tools and technologies you need will depend on your MVP’s requirements and your development team’s expertise. It’s important to carefully evaluate your options and choose the tools and technologies to help you build and test your MVP. Here are some standard tools and technologies that are often used in MVP development:
Development frameworks can help accelerate the development process by providing pre-built libraries and tools. Our options include React and ReactNative for frontend, NestJS, Expres, Spring and Ruby On Rails for backend.
Cloud hosting providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), and Google Cloud Platform can provide the infrastructure and services you need to host your MVP.
Databases are used to store and retrieve data for your MVP. Our main options are MySQL, PostgreSQL, and MongoDB.
Version control systems such as Git can help you track changes to your code and collaborate with others on your development team. We use and respect Gitflow and run deep code reviews.
Project management tools like Jira can help you organize and manage your development process, plus Miro for tasks and Parabol for evaluating the processes.
Testing and deployment tools such as Jenkins, Travis CI, GitHub Actions, and CircleCI can help you automate your testing and deployment process.
We strive to be exceptional in all regards. We take ownership and initiative to ensure that success is not only our goal but our responsibility. We aim to be proactive and stay one step ahead of the curve, so we’re better prepared for what lurks around the corner.
