What exactly is an MVP? 

A Minimum Viable Product, or MVP, is a stripped-down version of a new product, containing just enough features to validate its concept and collect feedback from a set target audience.

This streamlined approach allows for quick product development and launch, helping entrepreneurs test their ideas in the real world with minimal resources. 

In short, an MVP development process involves the following steps: 

  • Analyzing the market and identifying your target audience 

  • Establishing a clear goal for your project

  • Defining and narrowing down your MVP scope

  • Building the essential features to achieve your goal

  • Launching and testing the MVP to gather early user feedback

  • Iterating based on continuous feedback cycles, until you arrive at the final version of the product

How to find the right MVP development agency 

Building an MVP is often a challenging journey, and nothing impacts your chances of success like the quality of the squad working on it. So if you're ready to kickstart your MVP journey, here are some pointers to help you find a development partner that's a great match to your project's needs.  

Expertise and Experience 

Never shy away from asking a potential development partner for examples of their work. An agency's portfolio should display a track record in developing MVPs for similar projects or industries, and demonstrate their proficiency in working with the technology stacks you'll need. If they have delivered great MVPs for companies with similar needs to yours, then they'll likely be a solid partner to work with. 


Although working with a skilled and experienced team might seem expensive at first, their efficiency often leads to lower MVP development costs in the long run, in comparison to what "cheaper" crews can deliver. Trust us: having to redo the work multiple times before you can get it right will drain both your budget and your patience in no time! So whatever you do, avoid letting the price tag be what guides you in this selection process.

Communication and Collaboration

Try to gauge the agency's level of responsiveness and willingness to engage in open communication throughout the development process, to avoid being left in the dark once the work begins. It's also important to ask about their work methodology. An Agile development approach is known to offer the best results for MVP projects.

Project Estimates and Value Proposition

While your decision shouldn't be solely based on price when hiring MVP development services, it's still essential to be mindful and realistic about costs and other estimates. A serious agency should be able to provide clear project estimations, including pricing breakdowns, projected timelines, and details about potential risks. Be sure to also evaluate their value proposition and check if it's well aligned with your goals and expectations before you sign them up.

MVP Rescue Mission: Taking Fluint from mid-project chaos to successful launch in 90 days 

Fluint, a B2B SaaS startup with a unique approach to sales, was one of the many clients who arrived at NaNLABS in dire need of an MVP rescue. Their goal was to create a user-friendly platform that served both sales reps and buyers while also enhancing the existing codebase for scalability.

Fluint's MVP development was actually already underway but a complete chaos, as a result of the poor performance of their development agency. The project, which was supposed to be a 90-day job, had just reached the 9-month mark, with the only outcome being a low-quality and non-scalable codebase. 

Although quite challenging, Fluint's situation was nothing we hadn't seen before, so we swiftly curated a team tailored to their needs and jumped right in. 

After establishing trust with the client through a transparent and comprehensive project assessment, we began the overhaul of their bug-infested codebase. Among other key interventions, our team cleaned and stabilized the code, enhanced it with advanced features, and swapped their editor library for a more suitable option. Adopting a customer-first approach, we kept our focus on customer outcomes instead of feature overload and landed their ideal MVP within 90 days. 

Despite arriving at NaNLABS with a crumbling project, Fluint left with a high-quality and fully scalable MVP, featuring a user-friendly UX that catered to two distinct user roles. Their MVP launch soon proved to be a key stepping stone to the company's success, allowing them to quickly collect valuable user feedback and acquire their first paying customers. 

Feeling like your MVP project is also at a dead end? Our experts will turn it around and get you to the finish line before you can say "MVP chaos". Get in touch now and let's get to work!'s MVP Story: the magic of matching with the right team is a SaaS web app for personalized GIF creation catering that needed to transform its proof of concept into a market-ready MVP within 90 days

When Jeff Hatten,'s founder, reached out to NaNLABS, he had extensively researched development partner options, with no luck. The million-dollar US-based quotes were a no-go, and non-US teams lacked in terms of talent. Not to mention the low interest many of them showed in his product vision. 

After our initial discussions, Jeff was convinced that he had finally found a good match.

“They took the time and effort to scope the project and understand my needs, which is why I chose them. NaNLABS struck a balance between challenging me and ensuring that the solution we were arriving at was something they could deliver—not being the ‘yes-man’ and not the ‘no-man’ either.”

Facing challenges like manual processes and limited resources, wanted to streamline its workflows, reduce GIF generation time, and automate tasks. So we stepped in with a tech stack that included React.js, Nest.js, and AWS Lambda, and passed Jeff's 90-day challenge with flying colors.

Through our collaboration, reached not only the project's goals, which included reduced GIF generation time – from 15 minutes to 15 seconds without manual intervention – and a custom Google Chrome extension for LinkedIn data extraction. The company also attracted a beta user waitlist, achieved early validation among them, and quickly scaled its business without any hiccups.

MVP for a Privacy management client: from 0 to 100 in 45 days

MVPs that are still in preliminary stages can be particularly challenging, demanding a much deeper level of collaboration between the team and the client. That was the case of a privacy management startup that arrived with a product idea, some market research, and a 45-day deadline to launch an MVP suitable for enterprise clients. 

This client required a lot of early-stage MVP development support and top AWS knowledge to land a solution that would bridge the gap between privacy policies and developers. 

On top of the challenge of building enterprise-level software in such little time, they were seriously struggling to define a scope and concerned about working with a partner in a different time zone. But once the project began, the client's initial worry disappeared, as we quickly integrated into their culture, participating in every single one of their Agile rituals. 

After helping them nail their scope, it was time to leverage our AWS expertise. Employing tools like Amplify, AppSync, and Cognito, our experts took their product from zero to a fully functional pilot in 45 days! It was a great technical accomplishment, but that's not all it’s about for us. 

We care about our clients' long-term success, and they can feel it in the way we work. So much so that, once again, we turned a one-off project into a much longer partnership, and soon began supporting them in an augmented team modality.

Starting from scratch with your MVP? No problem. Just get in touch! We'll get you from zero to a hundred with a team of experts who truly care. 

An Agile boost to take Amalgam's MVP into the enterprise world

Amalgam, a financial and accounting startup, arrived at NaNLABS looking to stabilize their software solution which had too many bugs, take it to an enterprise level, and incorporate Agile processes into their lifecycle. 

They also needed a smooth transition from the previous service provider. This provider had ​​cut some corners in building Amalgam's MVP, and that was now creating issues for their developers. 

So NaNLABS stepped in, swiftly onboarding an augmented team from Argentina to collaborate with Amalgam's New York-based squad. Their challenges ranged from knowledge transfer issues and high technical debt to the absence of Agile processes and project management.

Our experts tackled these issues head-on, implementing Agile workflows, refining code standards, and automating processes. We stabilized the product, reducing bug-fixing time by nearly 80%, doubled monthly deployments, and revamped the front end to align with new branding. The results speak for themselves: a seamless transition, an Agile workflow, a cleaner and scalable product, and successful integration with new tools like QuickBooks and Salesforce.

In a few months, NaNLABS successfully transformed Amalgam from an MVP into a scalable enterprise application software, seamlessly integrated with tools like QuickBooks and Salesforce. And all while also imparting a load of strategic knowledge of Agile methodologies! 

The client's growth from an internal tool to a standalone SaaS product is a testament to the impactful collaboration between NaNLABS and Amalgam, which also developed into a long-term partnership.

MVP for a startup: building a Progressive web app 

The product envisioned by our client had a great mission: helping people land jobs in the tech sphere using a clever speech recognition tool. However, despite having already laid out a lot of work, they were facing three important challenges in building their MVP:

  1. Hiring a software development company that could help bring their vision to life

  2. Finding ways to process the audio and make it digestible enough for the Machine Learning algorithms

  3. Building an end-to-end solution that integrated all the different software pieces

This project was not going to be exactly a walk in the park, even for a team with 10+ years of MVP development experience, such as NaNLABS. It was clearly UI/UX heavy, and we would be working on software that required real-time audio processing, as well as Machine Learning and API integrations. 

Luckily, the NaNLABS team loves a good challenge! Our handpicked team, including full-stack developers, a UI/UX designer, a project manager, and a principal software developer, had both the expertise and the drive to make it happen. 

Using Agile methodologies, we prioritized incremental development and delivered a solid architecture using Nest.js, GraphQL, Firebase, and Google Cloud services. Overcoming UI challenges with Figma, we integrated NLP and DSP for accurate voice analysis.

The result? A Progressive Web App that was able to process the words, sentiments, and rhythm of each voice note, and build a personalized learning plan for every user. Delivered in only 60 days, the MVP allowed the client to quickly launch pilot programs, get user feedback, and start generating traction.

Ready to build your own MVP? Some considerations before you get started

Now you know a bit more about what MVP development projects look like in real life, but there are still some key things to know before building an MVP. Here are some quick pointers from the NaNLABS team that will help set you up for MVP success:

  • Focus on solving user problems instead of simply adding features. Keeping your MVP lean and purposeful will bring you better results at the lowest cost. 

  • Meticulously scope the project, collaborating with experts to avoid feature overload, but also oversimplification.

  • Stick to an Agile development approach. It will allow you to be flexible without losing sight of your MVP's core objectives.

  • Launch quickly, focusing on speed and concept validation rather than perfection. That's what MVPs are for!

  • Finally, choose a reliable partner who can show you a track record of MVP successes. A good development agency should have no problem offering several examples of MVP projects and the results they have achieved.
