The Challenge

“I’ve got a really great idea, I can visualize the app (or website) in my mind, I just don’t know how to get it made.”

That’s why ProductDone started!

In the tech world people have the skills and know-how to easily throw up prototypes in a weekend or an MVP in a few weeks and rapidly test out their startup idea.

What about non-technical folks?

Non-technical entrepreneurs have what it takes to come up with a great idea and turn it into a profitable business. In fact, they’re often better suited for success because they come from industries where they’re intimately aware of inefficiencies or opportunities that software could solve.

But how does a non-technical person turn that great idea into reality?

Traditional development shops take months (or even years) to design and build web applications or mobile apps (usually charging $80k–$250k).

What if we could take your great idea and combine it with a startup-style “hackathon” execution (without quite as much Red Bull and all-nighters)?

With a wealth of experience shipping traditional-style development projects, we decided to take on the challenge and went back to our drawing board.

We spent months re-engineering our entire design and development process to rapidly reduce the time and costs to deliver the first version of a mobile app or web application.

The result of this is ProductDone – from Idea to App in as little as 12 Weeks!

Our Mission

ProductDone’s mission is to give everyone the tools and resources to quickly get their product idea out into the wild – starting with an MVP.

What have you shipped this month?
Nobody benefits from software or websites that are “still in development”. Our goal is to always be shipping new and tangible things.

With a culture of ‘always shipping’ we all need to be practicing what we preach. Each member of ProductDone has a commitment to always be shipping new things.

This includes shipping client projects (of course!), but it also involves coming up with ideas and designing and building internal tools, blog articles, ebooks or even micro startups.

Some things we ship won’t stick or make as big a mark as we hoped but that doesn’t matter – the important thing we want to focus on is that we ship.
