Why an MVP?

With a prototype in your hands thanks to our Design Sprint, it's now time to actually build the product you have dreamed of. Based on the lean startup methodology, we only build the minimum amount of required features to acquire early adopters. This is what we call a Minimum Viable Product (MVP). The features to prioritize are chosen based on our design sprint's user stories & user testing feedback.

The clock's ticking

The longer you hold on to your idea, the higher the risk that your competitors will beat you to it. You could hire in-house developers or a freelancer to build your software product for you...

Reduce Time to Market

...but it takes time to find someone with the right mix of skills for your specific product. Can you afford the risk of losing valuable time & money on building the wrong application ?

Build a better product Software. Faster.

Why outsourcing ?

It might seem scary at first glance to outsource the product on which your whole company is based, right? Outsourcing your product development to a Software House is the right choice if you want to:

  • alleviate the risk of hiring the wrong developers internally.

  • fast-track your development to beat competitors and scale your business.

  • focus on your company and not lose precious time & money on building the wrong software product.


Is it for you? Expect...

  • Fast, efficient development - agile process.

  • Getting started right away - no lengthy hiring delays.

  • Functional minimum viable product - with all the core features and functionality.

  • Reliable, usable & tested software product

  • A software product ready to be tested with real users - or to share with prospective investors.

Development process

Our MVP development service follows the best practices of the agile development process. We work in two-week sprints, incorporating planning, development, testing and reviews, delivering visible and continuous progress throughout the project. We typically combine both programming as well as user interface design. At the end of each sprint, the work is deployed, so your product grows in two-week stages.


Features that deliver value

Working from the prototype version of your product, we plan out the features required for your minimum viable product, sort them into a prioritised backlog of ideas, features and functionality, and review at the beginning of each new sprint to ensure we’re working on the most important features that deliver maximum value.

Inspired by the lean startup methodology, we can help you validate your product idea by the market with this principle: Build > Measure > Learn.

build measure learn

Sprint review and test

At the end of each sprint, we review the work we've completed and re-assess our priorities for the next sprint. At this stage your product can (and should) be shown to early users, so you can begin getting feedback. This can be used to influence and revise the planning for the upcoming sprints, as well as to guide future product development.


Is an MVP right for me ?

Before you start thinking about developing your minimum viable product, we recommend:

  • Having an initial prototype - this gives us a starting point to focus our discussions, and a clear visual point of reference.

  • Validating your product idea - sharing your prototype with some prospects, and testing it with real users, to better understand the problem you want to solve.

  • Being prepared to get started - it can feel like a huge deal. Are you ready ?

If you don't have a prototype yet, our Design Sprint service, an essential prerequisite for our MVP development, may be a better fit for you.

Customer Stories

Hundreds of businesses trust us to deliver perfection every day.

  • “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
