Will you be my personal development team?

Not exactly. We will make your MVP and as you beat the goals we set together we are gonna keep iterating it from time to time. On a weekly basis we will squash bugs and help you with business related decisions and guidance only.

Will everyone of the team work on my project?

No. We will compose a team with 3 members for each project.

Is it REALLY free?

You won't have to pay us any cash for developing anything but we keep 30% of the business. Only expenses like the host, domain and similars will be on you.

Why do you get 30% of my company?

Seriously? You didn't read anything about how it works right? And if you read it and still doesn't see enough value in it, please, don't bother applying ;D

Do you have a lot of contracts for me to sign? I love bureaucracy!

Sorry but we hate it and won't have you signing anything right now. We will begin it as a gentlemen's agreement.

Why don't you develop your own ideas?

As we can easily turn our ideas into a functional application, we have a lot of projects running with almost no users using it because we don't have enough time to dedicate to maintain and grow all of them.

What will I need to do when project is online?

You will take care of the day-by-day and sell the project! Your main objective should be to beat the goals we have set together!


Do you have expertise in which of these?
