Think big but start small – MVP development

Let us guide you through the whole MVP development process, starting from your concept.

We know how to translate an idea into a digital product that works for the user and fits into the market. Let’s have a look at your MVP itinerary.


01 What is MVP development?

Creating an MVP is a journey you take to create a digital product. Let us guide you through the whole MVP development process of verifying the idea with users, designing and building a web or mobile app.

Easy as pie? That's the way we work.

01 What might our step-by-step MVP development journey look like?

With your idea for an app, you must be wondering how many steps you need to take to create an MVP and lunch it. Let’s not overcomplicate it.

Imagine you right after...

  • Idea icon

    ...the apple fell on your head, and you say: 'Eureka!'

  • Googling icon
    01 found out after hours spent googling that: 'these folks from CSHARK seem to know their onions. I'm filling in the form!'.

  • Consultation icon
    01 spent 30 min on a call, and 'oh, it was not a random sales rep, but rather a tech consultant, what a relief'!

  • Proposal icon
    01 received a proposal: 'so this is possible to respond to all of my needs and clearly show how much, what, how, who and when! I want them!'.

  • Workshops icon
    01 attended the design sprint workshop: 'those folks questioned my ideas, but the product is now twice as good! I can show this to investors!'

  • Development icon
    01 finally see an app that you can play with: 'works flawlessly! Quite a nice change from switching Bluetooth headphones between devices!'

  • MVP launch icon
    01 finally see your product being bought 'wow, I have the first customers! This is mustard <the sound of opening champagne>!'


Wanna try to kickoff the MVP on your own?

That's OK! We have prepared an MVP development checklist that might be helpful.

    01 Consult your MVP idea

    Ready to consult your idea, ask questions and get to know the MVP development process? You won’t meet a typical sales rep, but someone who takes part in the design sprint workshops and can translate technical stuff easily like IKEA assembly instruction.
    Our MVP consultation lasts approx. 30 minutes (or a little more if we use flowery language). Not a big commitment to get our insights, right?

    01 MVP product and technical workshops

    After the MVP consultation, real magic happens! We tailor the scope of our design sprint workshops to your needs, and gather our best minds on board, to work with you on:

    • Branding icon
    • Product–market fit icon

    • Business analysis and modeling icon

    • Prototype icon (2)
    • Product strategy icon
      Product strategy

    To the design sprint workshops, we invite decision-makers and industry experts from your side and the CSHARK team: product designers, analysts, software developers, architects and branding specialists. You leave the workshop with a prototype, roadmap and backlog. From now on, we only code what we came up with earlier.

    01 How much does it cost to create an MVP?

    <Trying not to write 'it depends'>
    It's hard to predict every step and feature, so it's impossible to give an upfront price. We will know it precisely after the workshops, creating a roadmap and backlog. However, we don't want to leave you without any information.

    At CSHARK an MVP typically costs between $40,000-$120,000.

    How much might MVP development cost in your case?

    After the call, you will find out in what price range we will be able to create an MVP with you, no strings attached.

    01 Why develop an MVP with CSHARK?

    • We didn't come out of nowhere - icon

      We didn't come out of nowhere.
      CSHARK was founded by 4 software developers in 2014. Now there are more than 300 of us. In 2021 we were among the 1000 fastest-growing companies in Europe!

    • We don't put AI where it's not needed - icon

      We don't put AI where it's not needed.
      Instead, we like to simplify processes and work on the 20% that deliver 80% of the results. We believe in minimum effort and maximum value.

    • We are flesh and blood and a bit of humor - icon

      We are flesh and blood and a bit of humor.
      What we love the most is working with people who are passionate and like to get things done, as we do.

    What I liked in the first place about working with CSHARK was complete honesty and transparency. The team was fully committed to the project's success and took the time to understand the industry and what we want to achieve. CSHARK also consistently explained the technical approach. This helped us to understand the reasons behind decisions which kept us on the same page. Finally, CSHARK was the only company that responded to all of our needs and recommended what worked well for us and not their technical preference. Thanks to all the team, you delivered above and beyond!
