Startups - the driving force behind innovation
Opposite to already established businesses from SMB or enterprise category, startups are already born digital. They have business models and strategies, built for the online world, they know how to market themselves and how to make sure their story is shared.
What they often need is an expertise in development, a reliable partner that will enable them to go to market with their planned MVP, or someone who will help them build their first prototype.
Sometimes they need a guidance in the form of highly skilled consultant or on-demand CTO who will help them steer the already proven concept into successful enterprise. In both cases, we can provide individual plans for Startups to satisfy their needs.
Minimum Viable Product
Whether you have an MVP in your mind or just an initial product idea, we are able to support you on your journey. With multiple years of experience in designing and development of minimum viable products, Webent assists you on the journey of simplifying your complex idea into manageable pieces that you can develop and iterate over time. Our goal is to get you on the market as fast a possible, so you can test your product and business model from the beginning. Time is money, and it may be a lot of money in the startup world.
Development outsourcing and personal leasing
Sometimes you need to quickly increase your headcount for a certain period to finish a particular project within your organisation. Or you need to bring in a specific skill set that is missing in your current setup. Outsourcing of development or personal leasing are ideal ways to solve these issues and can be often financially wiser decisions than hiring in-house permanent employee.
Consultants can be a viable addition to startup team. They bring in expertise in the field and many years of experience on how to transform this expertise into specific steps to bring value to their customers. Our technology consultants are able to help your team with a number of challenges, for example, how to set up new technology strategy, advise you on the adoption of devOps practices or support you with your technical requirements for your lead generation program.
CTO / CIO / VP of Engineering on demand
In certain phase you may realise your expertise in leading the development teams is not sufficient or overwhelming and you need dedicated person to take over the development team leadership. Hiring an external CTO, CIO or VP of Engineering may be a good option for the beginning. You get an access to experienced leader without the need of giving up equity or fat paycheck for permanently employed C-level executive.

The more you outsource, the less you have to manage
When we talk about startups and technology, we often imagine the newest, most cutting-edge technology options, that are going to revolutionize the industry. Although it may sound interesting and it will be definitely fun for the developers to explore these new, unexplored waters, this may not be a best option for a startup and can even harm the business heavily.
Even though using the newest and most powerful framework or library may seem as a good idea, these decisions often backfire when you are trying to hire developers experienced with your technology stack, in the financial aspect of hiring for technology that is not yet widely spread, or in missing community that could help you solve your technical problems.
For this reason, even though we can provide solutions in many technological ways and are always here to assist you with your tech stack, we decided to focus on few main technologies that we believe are beneficial to our clients, especially in the startup sector.
We have chosen technologies that are proven, open source and have a thriving community of developers. That assures they will be maintainable, scalable and it will be possible to find developers in the future for a reasonable price.
