Design Match for
non-technical founders

We match you with a designer who ensures your end user has the best experience


The challenge for non-technical founders

Non-technical founders often try to translate their ideas into reality, relying on developers to understand their vision with little reference. Non-technical founders working on raising funds must invest a lot into bringing their MVPs to life. Working with a design de-risks this process and allows non-technical founders another device for fundraising - an interactive prototype.

It costs 30x more to fix an issue in development than in design. Starting with design saves time and money and allows the founders to focus on what they do best. We recommend that non-technical founders work closely with a designer before hiring their first developers. For non-technical founders working with designers, no-code dev options can save founders up to 10x.

What clients have to say about working with Design Match


Design Match helped us find a product designer for our B2B marketplace! My matcher took the time to connect us personally with a product designer that had previously worked in a similar sector. They made sure that there was a fit in the experience and what we were looking for. Especially appreciated the thorough recommendation.

A refreshing and empowering experience! My matcher's deep industry knowledge was second to none and my first project was one that resonated on a deep, personal level. I was working with a newly funded education company empowering people of colour, working with world-class team on something that set my soul on fire. This is the reason I do what I do and Design Match was the first company that 'got it'.
