From the co-founders’ perspective, the solution was straightforward: an interactive matching platform. Amid video calls and chat options, there would be recommendations to other useful sources.
Easier said than done. When we reached out to the team offering our free mentorship help, the MentorMe team confessed they will need assistance with the realization of the project. Besides the building aspect, proper gamification was a key to successful business planning.
What we have done
We have assessed the needs of the team and the target audience. Based on that, we architected the future solution.
Software requirements specification (SRS) will help young founders when raising the next round and employing their own developers. They didn’t have any of that before.
Prototyping. The client provided us with initial wireframes to reflect the vision. We revised it and followed up with a clickable MVP. It is a crucial step that a lot of start-upers skip, although it is a key part of the Discovery Phase. We showed the client how the system will look like and work before delivering full web development service.
Mobile application development process. The prototype allowed us to gather valuable feedback and adapt the technical requirement and UI/UX design. Then, we proceeded to agile custom app development divided in 6 sprints over one and a half month.
