The first step in the XedialLabs process is validating the business case. XediaLabs employs lean
startup methodologies to fully understand customer needs. If there is not a problem worth
paying for, then the solution is not worth building.
Minimum Viable Product
Once the business case has been validated, the focus moves to building the minimum viable product
(MVP). The MVP is a prototype that meets customer needs and can be used to begin acquiring customers.
This allows the business to begin building traction, testing assumptions, receiving feedback, and
continue validating the business model with the smallest investment of time, capital, and human
We provide the following design capabilities to achieve an MVP:
- Software Requirements
- Software Design and Modeling
- Lean Software Development (Scrum, Agile)
- Desktop, Web, and Mobile Software Development
- Functional Requirements
- CAD Modeling
- CAE Analysis/Simulation
- Design for Manufacturing
- Rapid Prototyping
- Form Making
Scale and Grow
If the MVP further validates the business model, resources are refocused on scaling the product
and features, as well as marketing. This includes a/b testing landing pages, improving user
flows, refining core features, and introducing enhanced feature sets. Press events and releases
are coordinated to maximize exposure for the developing business.
XediaLabs works intensively with a startup for 6 - 9 months, then begins a
transition plan. This includes making introductions to investors and mentors, assisting
with fundraising, and recruiting and training early engineering employees.
