To simply put it, we are an “innovation and production center” for technology solutions that change the world.
We scratched our own itch 4 years back when we built our own very first product. Knowing too little about product development, we learnt, experimented, made mistakes, saw and heard others making mistakes and eventually rolled out our very first product. That was a failure, though not entirely. The experience helped us pivot and eventually getting success with the byproducts. We didn’t give up.
Over the period we used our experiences and worked with over two dozen startups and ideas bringing them to a successful launch. These iterations of product development had continuously refined our ability to make the right decisions and reject things that wouldn’t work. We facilitate our customers making the right decisions and highlight risks associated at a very early stage.
They say ignorance is bliss, we don’t agree. Knowing the amount of risks involved and diving in with the knowledge helps in early pivots, saving time and resources. We have seen founders making mistakes of building too much too early. Or not knowing their priorities, spending time on activities less important. Or doing too much planning, leaving less room for action. That’s a trap, with chances of failure way too high.
We believe in the lean startup movement and importance of rolling out “Minimum Viable Products” fast. This is to ensure that your customers validate the key hypothesis behind your business model and your key assumptions as early as possible. You will learn more in a day talking to customers than a week of brainstorming, a month of watching competitors or a year of market research.
At Virtual Force, we have brought in and nourished the finest talent, developed processes and methodologies to quickly roll out your ideas into Minimum Marketable Products. The importance of your first $$$ is often undermined. How quickly you can get there defines the chances of your success.
Our real value addition is in our process of brainstorming and playing with ideas along with you, forming them into user stories and eventually defining the visual prototypes. This serves as a strong foundation of a product that is further designed, developed and launched.
We love these lines from the book “Rework” by the founders of 37 signals,
“To do great work, you need to feel that you are making a difference. That you are putting a meaningful dent in the universe. That you are part of something important.”
