Hundreds of ``unicorn`` ideas are lost

because people don’t act on them!

The forever late

“I swear I had the same app idea that Snapchat had, but they did it before I got a chance.”

The overconfident

“It’s really not that hard. I could make an even better social platform than Facebook. What does mark have that I don’t?””

The perfectionist

“I have the next best thing. I’ve been working on it for 4 years and when it will be ready, investors will beg to get a share.”

What are your excuses

for not starting your app?

Money or Budget

Apps are expensive to develop. How can I afford it?
Well...

It is not about if you can get the money but how much you need.

Tech Language

How can I do an app if I don’t understand programming?
Solved

We know our business well enough that we are able to explain it to a non-tech person.

Family support

My mom will never approve of this (neither my dad).
Solved

I don’t think Elon Musk asked his mother if she’d let him do Space X.

Business experience

How will I run the business side of the app?
Solved

This is why we are great: we do apps while teaching you how to manage the business that comes with it.

Solutions exist

It’s up to you to decide in finding them!

THERE ARE REALLY NO EXCUSES!

Please, don’t make them up, just do your app!

MONEY WISE

There are four sub budgets that you need to consider

A budget for each stage in the concept development, besides just programming the app. Why?

We like to be very straight forward and transparent. Usually, an app development agency will just cover the Development part of the app in their cost. We think that’s often not really fair. There is more to it than that. You NEED to understand, for example, that without a budget for User Acquisition your concept can be doomed to failure, even if it’s the next Uber.

So, no matter what you’ve heard, in reality

YOU NEED ABOUT $75,000 FOR YOUR APP, IN TOTAL

Not only for Development but for everything that you need. Without hidden costs.

Let’s break this down so that it’s clear for you:

  • ~ $ 8,000 – concept phase;
  • ~ $ 45,000 – development;
  • ~ $ 15,000 – launch;
  • ~ $ 8,000 – raise;

This is the real cost. A fair one, but it’s still a lot.

THIS IS WHY A LOT OF GOOD IDEAS NEVER GET DONE.

We hate this situation so we came up with a potential solution.

OVERALL BUDGET PERCENT DISTRIBUTION

Conceive

Defining features, technical solution, business model, monetization, traction, branding and visual identity.

Develop

Designing the app graphics, develop the software behind it, implement all needed initial features, test it thoroughly.

Launch

Launch the app and promote it to gain traction and initiate user acquisition. This is what investors will look at.

Raise

Have all the tools ready to present the app to investors and convince them to give you money for further development.

WE'VE MADE APP MAKING AFFORDABLE

so that great ideas are not lost!

Clarifications

If you have other questions contact us. We’ll answer all of them.

Why is the User Acquisition budget mandatory?

Because without it the app won’t live! This money goes to Facebook Ads, Instagram Ads, Twitter Ads – and it helps promote the app to the audience. We hate it when we do cool apps and users cannot find them.

What app can be done in 50 hours?

A Minimal Viable Product that will get initial traction and market validation. You will not get an Uber app in 50 hours.

I don't want to give shares in my Concept!

No problem! If you don’t want to have us as partners it’s fine. There is nothing mandatory about it!

Can you do Android instead of iOS?

We have to decide together if market validation is more likely to come from Android users versus iOS users. We need to see.

How did you get from 75k to 25k (and less)?

We are talking about a single version of native iOS app (base design for iPhone 6). The package is limited to the time budget so the less you are willing to pay the faster we have to move. That means less talk and more action.

Why so cheap? No, really, this is a red flag!

Again, depending on your budget decision, you will get a working app that will give you market validation so that you can present yourself in front of an investor. We’ve done this several times.

Thinking of more ``red flags``?

Ask for clarifications!
It’s a bad idea to assume anything!

How to get the money you need for your App?

It is not easy, but now you’ll have a plan!

Your own savings

Take it as a proof of your confidence in your App. If YOU don’t invest in your App, why should ANYBODY do it? Either you develop it yourself (without any branding and strategy) or you need to put your skin in the game.

Co-founders

It’s always a good idea to complement your abilities with the strength’s of other people. Perhaps you’re a visionary and a good thinker. Perhaps you need a good administrator or a sales guy. Make clear the terms of the partnership. Talk with a lawyer to set things right and let’s go.

Friends and Family

This is where you need to CONVINCE people to trust you and your idea. You can give shares to them or just borrow the money and pay them in the next 24 months. Almost all start-ups had helped from friends or family.

You should not work with us if

You know better and you only want it your way

We’re experts, not servants. If you know how to do an app then you should go ahead and do it. While we don’t know everything, we know this part of the world pretty well.

You're in just for the money

It is very important to have the financials covered. They are essential to being able to survive and to keep doing what you love. But when you’re just hunting money at all costs, then we don’t want to work with you.

You don't praise the Costumer

We only want to work with people that get this: we need to make our Customer’s life better. All we do is to achieve that. If that sounds too hippie for you, then you’re missing some context, please don’t reach out to us.

You don't have a sense of humor

We know when to be serious, we know how to grind, but if we’re not having fun together despite the stakes then we’d do better planting our oranges somewhere else.

You don't understand the lack of guarantees

With all our experience, with all your money, with all planets aligned, there is still a good chance of failure. If this scares you, don’t do it! Imagine for a moment that we’ve started a project together and it’s struggling. If you cannot take this, don’t do it!

You're not prepared for the long run

This is just the inception phase of the app. This is not “IT”! If we start this, we’ll never be done, unless you sell everything. There will always be additional investments to be made. More work. More features. More…

Why is this page so freaking long?

Because we seek those that can invest time in their own Dream! This is not the Tinder-like decision (swipe right or left).
This is your Future! This is big so it deserves a “big” landing page.

So…

Do you have a cool app idea?

Do you believe in it so much that you would START making it?

Have you decided on the budgets?

Of course, there is flexibility if there is the right chemistry.

Do you like us? Do you like what you've read?

Enough to want to see yourself working with us, trusting us with your Dream?
