We help startups test their ideas fast and on budget — applying our analytical and technical expertises.
Services we provide
MVP for startups
We develop MVPs for startups: working solutions that have carefully selected features and top-level UI/UX design to skyrocket a product.
We help to identify core features, plan the development process, and guarantee that you’ll get your product on time.
Custom software development for startups
We transform ideas into market-ready products that are reliable and scalable. Starting from scratch, we use a tailored approach to deliver what you need.
We’re here for you whether you’re just starting or looking to improve a previous solution or pivot your startup.

Have been hemmed and hawed for months and still not sure about building MVP? Consider these points and make your decision.
- Testing the waters
MVP lets you test the idea at minimum cost. It is easier to release a stripped-down version of your product, and adjust it for a specific audience.
- Saving your pocket
MVP saves your money thanks to step-by-step development. Pay a minimum and wait until the idea brings some profit to reinvest it into further improvement.
- Attracting investors
MVP helps to attract investors. Interest them in your idea with a functioning product, inspire their trust, and get more chances to gather funds.

How we deliver software development
- Project kick-off
The process is triggered by a simple action — your getting a quote form submission. Our manager schedules an initial call to ask questions about your idea and collect all requirements and specifications. We then come up with our MVP vision and time & budget calculations.
You can also start by a rough cost estimation: try out our MVP calculator. It’ll help you understand the approximate budget and make a decision to continue the cooperation.
- Project planning
We provide you with a project manager. The manager plans sprints and organises the team to work as efficiently as possible to reduce time-to-market and advance your product.
- UX design: mindmapping and wireframing
We start with competitive analysis — it allows us to see what features they have and build our vision of your product based on studied patterns. We create wireframes that settle any questions related to the IA and present a skeleton of the future product.
Our design team works with Figma that enables you to comment on the design during the process and keep track of any changes.
- UI design: creating concepts and packing UI kit
Our design team creates several UI concepts, which give you options to choose from. Altering colors, fonts, and other elements is okay, we’ll accept changes until you get what you want. We add visual elements to create the look and feel that enhances user experience.
We pack the UI kit — an important thing needed to prevent any possible gaps between designers and developers.
Software development for startups is planned according to Scrum. We split the process into sprints, and present reports at the end of each. Plus, we deploy ready-coded parts on a testing server, so you could try your product on a real device in real life.
- QA testing: polishing bugs
We run QA testing in parallel with the software development for startups as it affects the quality of a product. This approach lets us deliver consistently working apps without bugs.
- Getting ready for release
We help to release your product in App stores: no matter we’re talking about the App Store or Google Play, or both, we know how to get an app submitted by the systems and liked by users. Have much experience in it.
- Further product
If you want to have a steadily working product that gets many cool updates, we’ll help you! We support and maintain products after they are launched — you can book a number of working hours of the developer who worked on your product who will stay in touch.
How long will it take to build an MVP startup?
We believe time-to-market is the most important thing for any startup. That’s why we limit the production timeline of software development for startups to 3 months. However, it’s possible that some projects are done in 2 months, and some need more than 3 months.
How much will it cost to develop an MVP startup?
We set $30,000 as a rough budget limit. Try our MVP calculator to get an estimation of your project or contact us, and our manager will come up with an exact calculation.
What advantages will I get when hiring you to develop my MVP startup?
The Purrweb team knows all ins and outs of software development for startups and has solid experience of launching products for startups. We deliver working solutions upon a bare concept and figure out the user needs to avoid potential time and monetary losses.
What is the pricing model?
We work based on the Time & Materials approach.
Pay as you go. It works perfectly for those who want to define the feature list and are not sure about overall goals. Here you pay only for the time a team spends working on the project.
What is the first step I do to start working with you?
Who’s involved in MVP development?
The minimal team needed for software development for startups includes project manager, UI/UX designer, 3 developers (2 frontend and 1 backend), and QA engineer.
Why build MVP first?
Whether or not you wanna get started with MVP, idea validation must be the top priority. You can pawn your house and get the money needed to build a complete product. Another scenario would be to take small steps (not giant leaps) and test things out with something fast and simple.

What our clients Tell about us
Dantist App Startup
My name is Koray, I’m from a marketing agency in Berlin. Purrweb designed us a web app for dentists. We are very happy, it was a great project.
CTO at Personalised.co
Purrweb is one of the fastest agencies if not the fastest one that I’ve ever worked with. In terms of budget, the cost was very affordable — not too much more than you expect from a typical freelancer yet the quality level that you’re buying for that is definitely kind of top end. I'd love to mention that we originally planned to build MVP design but the design that we got is much more better — the guys from Purrweb weren’t just a yes-man, they were challenging some of our ideas with constructive feedback and the product we ended up with as a result is very high quality.
CEO at minme.io - Site-builder
Working with Purrweb was an incredible experience from start to finish. They’ve always been responsive in no time, and the design skills of the team are evident: it’s really great quality work. I am happy with everything that we received from them. It was a pleasure working with Purrweb. Thank you!
CEO at contentplace - Content marketplace
Purrweb was the perfect solution for us to build the utmost viable platform. The way they worked helped us in building and designing our platform — better than we could have ever expected. We recommend Purrweb 100% for any of your developing needs.
CEO at Fintech Startup
Purrweb helped me very much by designing our app. And the whole process from the beginning of the first contact to the delivery of the final designs was really satisfying so I can recommend work together with Purrweb. I'm really happy with them!
CEO, Stark Systems - Fintech app

Founder & CEO at Viatu AG - Travel Platform
The communication was really immaculate right from the start. We got responses really fast, and I was able to hope to a voice call within a couple of hours. I am thankful so much to Purrweb for the continued support and for the great work!
Purrweb provided us with a complete design solution for our customer-facing platform. I recommend them to everyone who looks for an awesome UX/UI team. They are extremely talented, as well as upfront and honest.Their attention to detail, and care on a whole, was of the highest level - Purrweb is a very client-oriented team.
The guys wrote the front- and back-end for our web app. The project turned out to be quite big and difficult in the implementation of certain elements, but the guys exceeded my expectations.The team is very responsive, explaining to me all the work in detail, and in some cases advised me how to do better:)
Purrweb provided full-scale mobile app development, which allowed us to raise a round of investments and earn a government contract. There was constant communication, they were proactive in providing feedback and able to flexibly implement my suggestions.
Unlike other developers I’ve worked with, Purrweb genuinely cares for our project, and they delivered a product that has successfully launched and attracted thousands of daily users. Selfishly, I’d like to keep Purrweb to myself, but their team is fantastic, and I’d highly recommend them to anyone looking for a web development team.
I have been working for one year with Purrweb. The communication is very smooth and the quality of their design is excellent. I warmly recommend you this agency.
We worked with Purrweb team, they made brilliant web and mobile design for our project, everything was great and we really enjoyed working with this agency. Communication was excellent, they assigned a project manager, and for us it was great since he translated our ideas into design perspective and actual tasks for the design team. Also, they’re not so pricy.
I can highlight easy communication, they were very responsive (even despite the time zone difference). Clear timing and even done a few extras free of charge. Purrweb team seems to have experience of creating apps and looking at the task from the long term perspective even if they were not responsible for that.Value for money indeed and personal approach.
Purrweb’s involvement has moved this once-stuck solution toward launch. Their developers are the most skilled I’ve worked with in recent years, and they work at a fair price. The testing phase has drawn positive feedback from user groups. Expect a partner who takes initiative to move the project forward and works efficiently to meet deadlines.
Before Purrweb we have dropped a few other suppliers and when we have started to work with Purrweb we found out that they have a strong customer support focus, always keep deadlines and help us move our products forward. I’m 100% sure that working with Purrweb will make the journey to your goals easy and secure.
Purrweb’s CTO is a good Ruby on Rails developer and I enjoyed working with him. He was a big benefit to our team since he made suggestions on workflows etc. and helped us improve them. He cares a lot about keeping a customer satisfied and he has the ability to keep an overview about the whole project. I will definitely work with Purrweb again.
I always find myself coming back to this company for my design work.They surely know how to give an idea life and make it reality. Very professional and friendly.
These guys are awesome, would recommend to anyone who wants good quality service.
Perfect communication and response times. Always professional. Really took the time to understand our vision and contribute to that creatively. Went the extra mile and did not do just the minimum. Accomplished everything within budget.
Purrweb has an impressive portfolio of really beautiful UI/UX works. I also love the way they were working with my feedback and comments on the work done. The improvements were quick and the result is perfect.
Purrweb have incredibly talented designers and a team of excellent communicators around them. They provided project updates and presented the latest work and they were very responsive to feedback. We have been more than satisfied with every element of their work.
I know that 10 out of 10 exists only in a perfect world or a vacuum, however these guys are really close to it. They even exceeded my expectations.
It was maximum 2 hours to get a reply from my PM. I know usually designers don’t like modifications, however this wasn’t the case with Purrweb - they were very patient and comfortable to work with. They made the price and project stages very clear, and I was aware of everything happening on the project.
It was a non-standard project, since they didn’t have to start it from scratch, and they had to work together with my team. What I particularly liked and would like to point out directly - is that their manager Svetlana did a great job and helped us easily connect our teams and collaborate efficiently. This is a long-term plus, because now I know that whenever I need extra hands, I can contact Purrweb and get all the help I need.
Along the way of work we’ve changed the working process and adopted the Agile methodology with sprints - this helped us pull things together and speed up the development.
Purrweb team completely reworked the way navigation works and streamlined the core user flows, which made our service more intuitive and convenient for the users.
Purrweb’s manager had carefully studied our competitors, created a detailed mindmap, and spent hours discussing interface elements with us. I was impressed by their attention to detail and proactive communication - when something wasn’t clear enough they were asking questions in order to avoid mistakes.
The tool Purrweb are building for us has already helped our Security and Analytical departments to work with personnel profiles 20 times faster!
I admire the flexibility of the Purrweb team. The guys had kindly accommodated all our requests delivering even more than they’d committed to. I also love the transparency of the working process - I’m always aware of project status and I get an instant reply to every question I ask.
Thanks for your inquiry. We’ll get back to you in less than 24 hours!
