Listen to this episode with one of these apps:

After working with three different overseas development teams to build out the software behind his company, Mike Franz took a different approach for the development of his company’s mobile app.

Mike dives into why his experience makes him a proponent for non-technical individuals to work with local tech teams over offshore development agencies and gives advice to startup founders facing development challenges.

In this episode, you will learn:

  • How to gather user feedback before having a usable product
  • Why your developers should be pushing back at least a little
  • How a scope of work can get out of hand
  • Whether offshore development is actually cheaper than onshore development
  • Simple ideas for sourcing feedback
  • Suggestions for startups facing development challenges
