IMG_6948IMG_6940

Every startup has their own passion, like Google

So does RadyaLabs πŸ™‚

Its passion is about mobile apps

IMG_6944

And like all startups, it has its own dream too

Radya Labs has developed many mobile apps

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?

Some examples

IMG_6968

Another example

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
