CLIENT HIGHLIGHTS

Hear from our clients about their experience with us

Rhonda Dolan - Founder & CEO of Udo

”Working with Lean Start Lab has been very effective for CitySmart. Because of our relationship, I was able to leverage our new direction with a VC fund and accelerator that funded us with $200,000. Also helped us get to a significant growth stage where we have a product that clients can use with minimal issues and big results.”

Buble
Founder and CEO of CitySmart

Donald Hawkins

Founder and CEO of CitySmart

“Seeing your idea come to life - actually getting something on a computer screen that looks really, really nice - is by far the most exciting part of bringing the concept to fruition.”

Lauren

Lauren Lawrence

Founder & CEO of Stenovate

“Working with Lean Start Lab to really start to define the users, the user flows, and to get a visual prototype has allowed me to see my business in a different way and communicate it more effectively. And as a result, I refined my pitch and received some grant funding.”

Rhonda Dolan

Founder & CEO of Udo

“We have a product now. We can show people that it’s possible. We can do all this stuff just by logging into your web browser. You’re able to create models, run them, and see the results. This helps people see that it’s possible. The next step is to validate the product and prove that people are willing to pay for it. So, the next goal is to build a proof-of-concept product and get pilots.”

Elango

Elango Thevar

Founder & CEO of Blockchain Water

”We actually have something that makes people take us seriously as a company. Now I can pull my phone out and put it in front of them [investors], open it up and show them it exists. It brings more of a wow factor.”

Buble
Andrew

Andrew Tanner

Founder & CEO of LiveK

”You meet with other people and it feels very vague when things will happen and what you get as far as deliverables. We really liked how with that structured 3-week timeline you were gonna have the prototype in hand. And so, we knew what we were paying for when we signed up with them.”

Buble
CEO of ShopCircle

Holly Mihalovich

Founder & CEO of ShopCircle

”The team here is always very enthusiastic and easy to work with. They push back and ask insightful questions. I like how, when I over complicate things, they can break it down a lot easier”.

Buble
CEO of AI

Sunti Wathanacharoen

Founder & CEO of Pulmonaer Analytics

”To get a prototype that looks just like an app requires a professional touch, like what Lean Start Lab has.”

Buble
CEO of BNGO

Douglas Franklin

Founder & CEO of BNGO

”You guys are young entrepreneurs and are willing to get things done verses a larger firm that goes at a much slower pace. Working with big guys there are all kinds of roadblocks. They’re so set in their ways and unwilling to change. To them, we came off as a small fish and didn’t really get the kind of attention Lean Start Lab gives us. You have gone above and beyond to meet our needs.”

Buble
CEO of CoTT

Ben Hammes

CEO of Chain of Trust Technologies (CoTT)

”Beyond excited to be working with the creative & talented team at Lean Start Lab. If you have a big project (or small) and need an experienced team to not only take ownership in your vision but execute within time constraints this is the team for you. 5 Stars & highly recommend!”

CEO of Mirro
