The topic is about MVP to Validate Your Business Idea

IMG_6938

We have various audience, including one mum from Coding Mum πŸ™‚
IMG_6939

IMG_6948IMG_6940

Every startup has their own passion, like Google

IMG_6941

or Facebook

IMG_6942

So does RadyaLabs πŸ™‚
IMG_6943

Its passion is about mobile apps

IMG_6944

And like all startups, it has its own dream too
IMG_6947

Radya Labs has developed many mobile apps
IMG_6951

One of its best product is Appsterize

IMG_6952

The journey
IMG_6953

from ideation to kick-off

IMG_6954

from beta launch to v.10
IMG_6955

The development process took a long time due to these

IMG_6957

So RadyaLabs started to change their focus
IMG_6958

And listened more to the customer, resulting recurring clients and more transactions

IMG_6959

MVP is important
IMG_6961

Viable for what?

IMG_6962

The analogy
IMG_6963

The example

IMG_6964

The cycle
IMG_6965

Every product has its own MVP version to be defined

IMG_6966

Some techniques to build MVP version of our products
IMG_6967

Some examples

IMG_6968

Groupon MVP Version
IMG_6970

Another example
IMG_6971

Gojek MVP Version
IMG_6973

so the key is build with (free and available) software you know and do the manual work πŸ™‚

IMG_6974

WhileΒ also doing survey/interview and analysis
IMG_6975

Because numbers don’t lie

IMG_6976

Another example is Hailo
IMG_6977 IMG_6978
IMG_6979 IMG_6980

Every startup should set up metrics
IMG_6981 IMG_6982

And correlate the metrics with the target
IMG_6983

This is how Appsterize analyze the metrics and the targets

IMG_6984

The upcoming product of RadyaLabs πŸ˜‰
