Do you have some MVP development questions?

Not sure where to start with your Startup and MVP?

Here are the answers to some of the most common questions we hear from clients regarding app development for startups

Choosing the right mobile development company can be quite tricky, so we wrote down some insider tips to help you with that search. There are currently 376 mobile app development companies in London, and obviously, we'd like you to consider Empire Elements for your app development project or even MVP startup app.
Hopefully, we can! Let's get in touch first so we can send you our signed NDA and then you can speak to us with confidence. We offer several app development packages for London Startups to help build their MVP products. We offer a full service, from start to finish, including cloud computer architecture design and build for your web or mobile app.
Sure, why not. But first, let's see what stage of app design or development you are at and if we can help you. We can have a quick chat over a phone call, Skype or WhatsApp.
We want to say Empire Elements but choosing the "best" company is all about the right fit. There is quite a variety of different companies in London to choose from. We specialise in building web, and mobile apps form the initial idea to a large-scale, high performing applications that are built in the cloud to support any workloads. Among our clients are startups, small to medium size companies and Entrepreneurs in the UK, Europe and the Middle East.
Having a good plan is a start. If you don't have one, then don't worry, we are happy to help you. Our experience of 15+ years on the western market is available to you. We are happy to share our ideas and help you make a better app and grow your business. Developing Minimum Viable Product is the best starting point for any mobile app idea.
Developing a mobile app can be expensive and timeconsuming. The costs can be very different, depending on which agency you ask. Our app design and development services start at Β£20,0000 and can go up to Β£200,0000 or more. To build an average complexity app from start to finish is usually around Β£40,000.
Yes, of course, we'd be happy to! Let's start by calling us, skype or WhatsApp messages if you prefer.
Timeframe to build an app can vary wildly. All depends on the complexity of the features. To start with a prototype, you are probably looking at 2-3 months, to build and MVP an additional three months. Some very complex apps can take even months or more than a year to develop. The shortest development time was Do A Wilson app which took three months to build and My Hippo Space web and mobile apps took one year.
We sure can! Let's get our signed NDA to you and discuss your idea in more detail. There are three MVP development packages we can offer to you. We can create a prototype, full MVP and even investor pitch deck if you like.
