Why dedicated IT teams work best for startups
“Getting the team right is the necessary precursor to getting the ideas right.” Ed Catmull
If an idea drives a startup, it’s a team that’s focused on its success that makes it win in the market.
But what makes a great team?
Research shows us that during most evaluations for a team to support a startup, gut feeling and intuition were the main due diligence taken for a decision. This is not a data–driven approach and is a wrong way to decide on a team. Studies have found that 23% of new ventures failed because the team wasn’t right.
Based on our studies from observing patterns around winning teams, we’ve found a few key aspects for a technology team to win. They are:
- Soft skills
- Hard skills
But for a startup founder to immediately hire an entire team, with all these experiences, on their payroll can be rather daunting. They’d first have to hire a recruiter, and then professionals with this expertise, and that could mean incurring a financial burden on themselves.
Nuvento’s dedicated development teams allow startups and young enterprises to hire our teams to enable their technology projects and products. We are fast to adapt to new environments given our experience lies in quickly analyzing technology roadblocks and enabling startups and enterprises to make the most out of their technology infrastructure.
Our leaders, who drive the show, are technology veterans who have helped enterprises across various business sections like law, manufacturing, sports, insurance and so on, realize the true value of digital transformation by building and sometimes even reworking on existing system to enable fluid and efficient business processes.
How Nuvento helps startups?
- We help develop your PoC/MVP/prototype
These are the preliminary stages product development and our technology teams can guide and develop your idea to a product.
A proof of concept (PoC) is a method we use to assess the viability of a business idea that you can show to your investors to prove your idea can work so they’re convinced to invest. Investing in hiring a full time CTO could be an expensive proposition at this stage. So, the option we recommend from our years of experience is consulting with a solutions expert on the best course for your PoC plan. (link to consultation page)
Our dedicated IT teams can also enable the development of your minimum viable product (MVP), which is a basic version that can released in the market to satisfy early customers. While you may be considering hiring a whole team, our advice is ‘choose wisely’. Hiring a full-time team could come at a cost, and you’d have no guarantee on the output. Our dedicated development teams are dedicated IT resources who will work full-time on your projects as it is their own guided by our technology leadership and your business vision setting your business plan up for success.
Startup founders can also leverage our dedicated team’s expertise to build a prototype of their product, to give stakeholders and investors a draft version of what the product would look like. While hiring an experienced technology professional full-time would best option, to cut costs yet get the most bang for your buck you can outsource a developer instead and leverage the expertise of a technology consultant to ensure your plan is future-proof.
Dedicated IT teams therefore are one of the best and safest investments to make when you’re building a brand. Simply because you get to leverage the wealth of their leaders’ expertise and even develop your product at a fraction of a full-timer’s cost.
