Resources Required to Develop an MVP

Typically about 9 different roles are required to develop an MVP working simultaneously part time and full time on different stages of the project.

Assembling such team in house on early stage of the project is costly and inefficient because of part time involvement and short project duration. Also a lot of startups choose to pause after the MVP step to do some field testing or fundraising. Working with Itexus you will be able to pause and resume development without losing the key knowledge keepers.
