as a non-technical founder

Building as a non- technical founder

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.
