The internet is king, so whatever business you’re building, you’ll need to find a mobile app development company that’s as dedicated to your success as you are.
In 2018, there were 525,000 tech business establishments in the U.S.; 40,500 of those were launched in 2018 alone. By all indications, 2022 numbers are expected to be comparable to or even greater than pre-pandemic numbers. Gartner reported that 91% of businesses have already adopted some form of digital initiative.
It takes courage to start a new venture. It’s a massive challenge that requires a mixture of both optimism and realism as you navigate the difficult road ahead.
Entrepreneurs must build resilience and learn how to turn crises into opportunities as they manage risk after risk. In a world where many–if not most–startups fail, the road forward is filled with unexpected pitfalls that must be met head-on and overcome.
It’s not a calling for the faint of heart.
But there are concrete steps founders can take to reduce uncertainty and help their fledgling business grow:
- Know your competition.
- Always prioritize customer experience
- Add value wherever possible.
- Make the most of limited resources.
- Attract talented people to your team.
- Prepare for growth.
Apps Mean Business
Connecting with a company that specializes in providing mobile app development for startups checks several of those boxes.
Customers have come to rely on technology as a way of finding answers to their questions. A robust website or mobile app should be available to answer customer concerns on a 24/7 basis. It should be scalable as your company expands, but it shouldn’t break the bank when your business is just starting out and capital is such a precious resource.

But before getting into what Intuitio Labs can do for your startups, let us share some success stories.
Social Media and Musicians
In 2006, TuneCore changed the game for musicians by helping artists get their music on iTunes and Spotify. The musicians were able to impress new fans while also keeping 100 percent of their sales.
TuneCore provided an important service, but they wanted to do more to help artists grow their audiences. The solution was social media, which has the power to change a performer’s career for the better:
- 57 percent of social media users follow a musician or band.
- 57 percent of celebrities followed are in the music category.
But there was a problem. Social media marketing requires time and effort that could be better spent writing, recording, and performing music.
The team at TuneCore knew what they wanted, and they came to Intuitio Labs to put it in motion.
We used our digital experience and helped them conceptualize their product. Using UI/UX design, we developed their application and infrastructure architecture. The results work on the web as well as iOS and Android.
The result was TuneCore Social: A Social Media Tool for Musicians. Thanks to TuneCore’s imagination and our expertise, artists around the world have the ability to streamline their social media postings and reach more potential fans.
Technology for Event Security
Skylar Security came to us with completely different needs. The Atlanta-based firm is a non-traditional security guard boutique. It serves clients who need security services as well as security guards and traditional security guard companies.
They came to Intuitio Labs for help making the transition from a service-only business to a technology platform-driven security services company.
We helped them develop a strategy and provided both web development and mobile app development.
The result, which works on iOS and Android devices, is a guard management tool, an efficient way for security companies to manage their workforce for all their clients. The app and web page include a calendar, a shift-management system, and a profile page to highlight the guards’ qualifications, experience, and certifications.
We worked with Skylar Security to make their ideas a digital reality.
Process, Transparency, and Communication are Key
TuneCore and Skylar Security came to us with vastly different needs. We could accommodate them and a variety of other clients because we’re not shy about asking questions and creating products that provide solutions to each customer’s unique pain point.
When you hire our team, your thoughts and ideas become supremely important to us. We’re highly skilled when it comes to building custom-made digital solutions, and we enjoy the challenge of bringing your special vision to life. In addition, it’s just as important to know what not to do when launching a new product or company as it is important to know what to do. We ask the right questions to crystalize the MVP and work with our clients hand-in-hand to shape solutions that fit your needs.
Of course, we’re not mind-readers. And we don’t implement a one-size-fits-all approach. That’s why we always warn our clients from the start—we will bug you.
Our approach is all about transparency, so you understand what we’re doing and why. In fact, a huge part of getting to know clients is fully understanding the who, what, when, where, and why of your solutions. We have conversations early and often about your company’s vision for the future. We want to learn all we can about your:
- customer base
- market and competitors
- goals and objectives
The questions will keep coming. We’ll want to find out your vision for the app. And guided by that vision, we’ll brainstorm the ideas you pitch with our development team to examine the possibilities.
We provide transparency at touch points along the way. We explain the different features available, so you can have the options that are most important to you and your business.
We schedule meetings to show our progress and get your feedback on what we’ve created. Based on your requirements, we’ll plan the next set of tasks to be completed and set new deadlines as the project moves forward.
When getting together, we can communicate
- in person
- by phone
- by video conference
- through project management tools
- through CMS tools
The point of asking so many questions is to limit revisions and get you to market as quickly as possible.
However, we know your time is valuable. A startup gobbles up attention in often unpredictable ways.
Your approval is not required at every stage of development. In the beginning, we’ll work together to make a plan. We’ll also schedule meeting times throughout the process that fits with your schedule.
In any creative endeavor, a certain amount of experimentation is required. At steps along the development process, we’ll seek your input and refine our approach.
That’s because we want to give you the tools you need. We also understand you might be new to building digital platforms. startups don’t succeed without a detail-oriented approach, so we make sure you understand what we’re doing and why.
You might not become an expert on mobile app development for startups after working with us. However, by necessity, you’ll have a greatly expanded knowledge of the subject.
Simplify (for Now)
Our philosophy is to offer clients what they need, not what we want them to have. After you pick out a new vehicle on a car dealer’s lot, it’s usually time to sit in an office while a sales manager pitches option after option. Each one comes with an added cost.
There’s no offense meant to auto dealers. People who want leather seats and sunroofs should definitely go for the upgrades.
But the process of website and mobile app development for startups isn’t about loading a new business with options. It’s about getting to market quickly, in a way that also gives you the option of adding new features as your company grows.
We have a history of working with private equity and potential investors. We work closely with our clients to separate the good to have from the must-have. This helps in faster time to market. You don’t need to pack your website or app with a bunch of fancy features from the beginning to catch a venture capitalist’s interest.
Our goal is to get your MVP to market within six to 12 weeks. That is when you can start boosting your brand, engaging with customers, and building revenue.
Our relationship doesn’t end when we get a client’s app or website going–it’s an ongoing relationship and journey we are taking together. It’s a 24/7 world, and business doesn’t end on the internet when it’s 5 o’clock somewhere.
We have teams available at our help desk every hour of the day to handle whatever pressing issues come up.
But our idea of maintenance goes far beyond quick fixes. The digital world is constantly evolving. When we build your custom digital product, we want it to be future-proof.
We understand that mobile app development for startups requires a significant investment of your company’s resources. That investment needs to be protected, and we’re ready for all your app and website maintenance services needs.
Whatever your budget, our support, and maintenance team provide:
- tech support
- product optimization
- platform maintenance
We’re proactive when it comes to monitoring and preventing potential security threats. We provide periodic patching of all libraries and services to ensure your app or website is secure.
And as your startup grows, you might decide it’s time to add new features to your existing product. We have a team of designers, developers, and testers who specialize in creating new features that give your customers more options.
