Your First Best Step: A Product Definition Sprint

Two Atomic Object employees at a table, working on a custom software development contract.

As an entrepreneur, you know that getting to a minimum viable product (MVP) can be one of the most challenging parts of launching a new software product. You may have an excellent idea and a solid understanding of your target market, but without a team to execute your vision, you may find yourself at a standstill.

The Problem: Getting Started

Perhaps you know your target market and have a deep understanding of the problem you are seeking to solve. However, if you can't build your software product, can be incredibly challenging to get started. How do you get off the starting line when building software products is expensive and risky?

Solution: A Product Definition Sprint

What if you could have a crack team with decades of cumulative experience building software products? What if you could have that team for a sprint of work that would set you up for your first round of venture capital investment? And what if you paid this team a fixed fee and kept 100% of the IP generated? If those are interesting "what ifs" for you, then Atomic's product definition services might be your best next step.

Our team understands that the success of any software product depends on its viability, feasibility, and human interest/desire. As a founder, you likely have the viability piece down pat. You have a business model, a network in your vertical and market, and relationships within your local entrepreneur ecosystem. But without a design or technical team, you may struggle to define the feasibility and tell the story of human interest in your product or service.

That's where we come in. Our product definition services are designed to help you move forward with your idea, even if you don't have the resources to build a team or product yet. With relatively little investment, we can provide you with a cohesive set of services focused on firming up the technical foundation of your product. We'll also go through a human-centered design sprint to connect your product's functionality with the needs of your prospective market.

How It Works

Here's how it works. We start with a short design and planning sprint. We’ll review your work to date and give you candid feedback as accomplished software product builders. We've been working on the feasibility/human interest problems of countless clients for decades. That means we know what it takes to get a product from idea to launch.

Next, we produce a product roadmap to get you from zero to launch. This roadmap outlines the key milestones you'll need to hit to bring your product to market, and it serves as a blueprint for a team to follow as they execute your vision.

We'll also design the key screens you'll need to get your story across to investors, friends, and potential co-founders. This includes everything from wireframes to user interface designs. It ensures that your product is both visually appealing and intuitive for users.

And, if you need help creating your first pitch deck, we can co-create it with you. We know pitching your idea can be intimidating. However, with a well-designed deck that tells the story of your product and its potential impact on the market, you'll be in a much better position to secure funding and attract the talent you need to bring your vision to life.

Finally, we'll help you create a budget model to build the first release of your product. We understand that resources are often limited in a startup’s early stages. We'll work with you to create a budget that maximizes your investment and delivers the most value to your users.

And the best part? All the intellectual property (IP) belongs to you. We don't take a percentage of your company or dilute your equity. You pay for our services, and you retain full ownership of your product and its IP.
