Startup development

Launch Lab are highly experienced trusted startup web developers in Sydney and Canberra

We are startup and MVP (minimum viable product) developers in Australia. We custom develop unique tech startup ideas using scalable robust technologies trusted by Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Google.

We've developed applications for recruitment marketplaces, market research platforms, Saas (Software-as-a-service) startups, fintech startups and more.

We're trusted by entrepreneurs who are bootstrapping their own startups through to large Australian brands and Government agencies.

We have 2 major differences which separate us from other software development teams and digital agencies:

  1. All of our dev work is done in Australia. We do NOT offshore.
  2. We've worked with more than 25 startups making us one of the most experienced startup developers in Australia. We don't know it all, but we've experienced a lot and are happy to share our learnings with you.

The technologies we use to develop software for startups include Python / Django, React.js, Vue.js, AWS, Node and more. If you're unsure what these technologies are, that's ok. We offer a 'geek speak' free approach but will share the knowledge you need to run a tech startup.

We help our startup clients determine what product to build within the usual startup constraints of time and money. Our services include:

  • MVPs
  • Web Design
  • Backend Web Development (Python / Django)
  • Frontend Web Development (React.js and/or Vue.js)
  • React Native App Development
  • AWS Hosting & Infrastructure
  • Startup Consulting

Startup Testimonials

Here's what our startup clients have to say about working with Launch Lab:

If you're a founder with an idea, Launch Lab should be the first place you visit. Bringing your idea to life is what they do. And it's all they do. No accountants, marketing people, secretaries. Every single dollar goes to your project. We considered several Sydney web development houses before settling on Launch Lab, and have been pleased every step of the way.
CEO, Halogen Health
Launch Lab's Shaun & David have been working with me in the development and evolution of Bookform for over 3 years and I can highly recommend them. It is more expensive to contract developers in Australia, but it has been well worth it in the long run, because their work was top quality and always completed on time and to budget.

They are great communicators and were flexible in amending the brief after customer feedback required change. Launch lab has been a great partner throughout my startup journey and I couldn't have done it without their patience and expertise. I feel very lucky to have found them.
Founder, Bookform
Everyone has loved the site. They have all commented on how professional it looks and feels. They said they can see a lot of thought and effort has gone into this. Credit goes to you guys for helping us put this together! Congratulations and well done!
Founder - The Crimson Bride
I really appreciate all your efforts on this project, the feedback on the platform has been amazing.
Founder - Perfect Property
The relationship that we have built with Shaun and his team has enabled us to deliver on the promises we make to our customers. Most importantly, we've found them to always be genuine and professional and they've added significant value to our business through their consultative and holistic approach.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you have other questions or are ready to get started with a proven and reliable startup software developer please contact us.

What does it cost to develop a startup?

With budget usually being the biggest constraint for first time founders this is our most asked question.

We've written extensively about this on our blog. The quick answer is that you could get started with an MVP for just a couple of thousand dollars. However, to develop a web application pricing usually starts at $30,000.

Keep in mind that our approach is lean and we'll help you determine the most cost effective method of getting to market.

How long does is take to develop an MVP?

Similar to the cost question above, the project timeline depends on the scope. Some MVPs are simpy landing pages on a website meaning you can be up and running in days. For full applications we find the sweet spot for a minimum viable product is 12 - 16 weeks.

Do I have to be in Sydney or Canberra?

No. While our office is in Sydney, and our CTO is based in Canberra, we've worked with startups in regional NSW, Brisbane, Melbourne and the Northern Territory before.

I'm not a technical founder, is that ok?

Yes. That's why Launch Lab exists. We'll help guide the technical aspects of your startup so that you can focus on growth.

Do you offer ongoing support?

Yes. We expect that we'll be your outsourced software engineers and web designers through the early stages of your startup.

As you start to grow you'll hire your own employees to replace us. That's a great outcome for us and we'll be with you every step of the way.

Do you take equity?

If we have a good understanding of the market you'll be targeting and we've experienced the problem that you want to solve then there is a very good chance that we'd want to take equity. It's your choice and we're always open to discussing equity or fee based projects.

Do you offer any other services?

First and foremost we are product developers. That means we help plan, design and build startups. We also have the following experience:

  • Advertising & Marketing
  • Copywriting
  • Business strategy
  • Data science
What happens after I submit the contact form?

We'll get back to you very quickly. Usually within a few hours. Thereafter the process is usually:

  • We schedule a call to discuss your business idea. Depending on your idea and the industry you'll be working in we'll provide feedback and strategic advice.
  • We find that most founders want to understand cost and timelines as early in the process as possible. So, following the initial call we'll give you a no-obligation cost estimate.
  • If you're happy to progress the next step is to meet to take a deep dive into the product.
  • We might give you some 'homework' to do after that meeting and if we're all 'go' we'll start working on your startup.
Can you introduce us to venture capital firms and investors?

We don't offer this as a service and we certainly don't charge for it. However, we'll help where we can and will make introductions if the time is right and the investor is highly relevant to the industry you are working in.

The main thing to consider is that your goal at an early stage is not fund raising. Focus on getting to market and getting customers. You can focus on fund raising thereafter.
