We offer an innovative design sprint service: an intense five-day project where we focus on turning your idea into a clickable prototype - in just one week.

Our Design Sprint has been tested & approved by :

Why a design sprint ?

With a product roadmap in your hands thanks to our Strategy Workshop, it's now time to design your product, prototype it and test it. We will build it together in only one week.

From idea to reality

This is an essential first step towards developing the finished version of your product. Our design sprint service is structured with the non-technical entrepreneur in mind.

Challenge your ideas

Working with our expert team of product strategists and designers, you will explore the problem underpinning your product idea, to ensure your initial prototype is aligned with the problem you're trying to solve for your future customers.

Get your prototype in 5 days.

Why not jumping straight into coding ?

We have developed our design sprint to go from product idea to prototype to testing it with real users in just five days. At the end of the week you can already expect your non-functional clickable prototype ready for further validation with your target market to guide the development of your future application.


Is it for you? Expect...

  • User-focused design and development process.

  • Accelerated early product development, reducing the risk of your competitors beating you to market.

  • Building a clickable prototype in just 5 days.

  • Maximising your opportunity for learning and idea validation by getting your prototype tested by real users.

  • Shaping the next stage of your product development, based on the feedback you get on your prototype.

Good to know!

As we will build your prototype together, we expect from our clients to attend the first 3 days. If possible, attending the User Testing on Friday is recommended. If one person of your company can only attend one day, it should be on Monday when we tackle your problem and how we could solve it.

The only prerequisite is to own a product roadmap. Otherwise, we can't jump into design yet. If you don't have one yet, don't worry, we can make one for you in what we call a strategy workshop.


Our process

Our 5-day design sprints follow our own unique process, drawing on the methodology developed by Google Ventures and combining it with our experience of working with hundreds of software innovators.



Understanding & Mapping the Problem.

Our first objective is to truly understand the problem your idea will solve for its users. This first day is essential for helping us understand your customers' needs and ensure you're looking to solve a real problem for users.



Brainstorming Solutions by Sketching them on Paper.

You may think you've come up with a fantastic solution to your customers' problems - but will it really work, in practice? On day two we widen our focus to brainstorm as many potential solutions as possible to the problem your innovation is looking to solve.



Identifying Core Functionalities & Creating Mockups.

At this stage, we select the one solution that best solves the problem for your users. From there, we work to identify the core functionality that's required to test out this idea as a viable solution.



Developing a Clickable Prototype & User Testing Scenarios.

The fourth day is spent developing a clickable prototype of your software idea. This is where you see your idea really come to life for the first time, and turn from an idea on paper to a real product.



User Testing & Gathering Feedback
with our UX Expert.

On the final day of the design sprint, we get real users to test-out your prototype. This means you start getting real, actionable feedback on your idea, just five days after starting the development process - and will help guide further product development by keeping development aligned with what your users really need from your innovation.

The result is a non-functional clickable prototype

After only five days, you will have a clickable prototype that you can share with your target customers, to begin getting valuable feedback on your idea and start testing out the assumptions behind your innovation.

Customer Stories

Hundreds of businesses trust us to create their app's prototype.

  • “Belighted has enabled us to reduce our time to market on a few projects where we needed extra help. One of their developers supported by their product manager came and only 3 weeks later one project was already done. No time was wasted on onboarding, they were rapidly operational and a part of our agile scrum environment. Moreover, the value delivered in terms of product & software development expertise was very much appreciated by our technical team.”

    Olivier Simonis
    CEO, Qualifio

  • “It's a real pleasure to work with Belighted. They are focused on delivering features with business value and they like to get stuff done. This vision allowed us to launch our products with just a couple of months of development and help us to get user feedback”

    Antoine De Beys
    Co-founder, DeeCide

  • “Product development best practices are evolving at such a fast pace that it was difficult for me to make decisions related to the software product and the technical skills needed. Belighted's advice brought me confidence and gave me clear steps that helped me maximize my chances of success.”

    Vincent Leroy
    CEO, Neveo

  • “We wanted to build a new version of our learning management software, and Belighted convinced us to do a design sprint together before jumping into development itself. This helped us make much more informed decisions on what we needed, and how best to do it. In the end, it allowed us to better prioritise our project, and prevented us from going in the wrong direction.”

    Bertrand De Praetere
    COO, Dokeos

  • “Working together, we were able to rapidly prototype and deploy a world-first insurance check-up algorithm. From the initial conceptualisation until the first live trials by users, it took us a rapid 3 months of close collaboration. Today Seraphin is still successfully using the same healthy technical foundations laid by Belighted.”

    Xavier Lombard
    CEO, Seraphin
