Better products

“Good enough” software is never good enough for us. Our startup consultants bring diverse skills across mobile, web, cloud, and QA testing to help you build products that are optimized, scalable, and of the finest quality.

Enhanced security

Startups are a particularly lucrative target for cybercriminals. As holders of multiple compliance certificates, we inject cybersecurity into every stage of the software development process — including consulting — to boost your cyber immunity for years to come.

Since new players enter the game every day, having a strong product-market fit is paramount. Our startup consultants define the vision and scope of the product with the end result of an actionable roadmap that can adapt as new technologies and regulations emerge.

FAQ for tech startup consulting

When should a startup consider consulting services?

From the very beginning. Launching a game-changing product takes significant time and seismic energy, and consulting with experts who have done it all before (many times!) makes the whole process faster, easier, and more seamless.

Who are your consultants?

Our startup consulting teams include senior technology leaders and solution architects with decades of experience building innovative products designed to scale. They’ll guide you through the entire software development lifecycle, from roadmap to launch.

What tech consulting services do you offer for startups?

Our consulting services cover every aspect of your startup’s trajectory, including MVP planning and development, architecture and technical roadmapping, balancing feature-flow against technical debt, and helping you choose third-party integrations to get to market faster.

Do you offer consulting services for regulatory compliance?

Of course. Our consulting services will help ensure your product complies with all relevant regulations for your region and industry, including financial technology and healthcare. We have deep experience across industries, and we keep up with regulations as they change, so no matter what your sector, we’ll help you make sure that your solution ticks all the boxes.

How does Vention ensure my data is safe?

Our robust cybersecurity services always prioritize the security and integrity of your data. We ensure all client communications and work are protected according to current best practices.

Does Vention offer any other consulting services?

In addition to wide-scope consulting services for startups, we also offer product discovery workshops, which can help businesses de-risk development and turn their product ideas into workable solutions, as well as our CTO as a Service offering, which is designed to provide high-level business advising and technology leadership.

What is the difference between a consultant and a technology partner?

While consulting provides access to cross-industry insights about your MVP, market position, technology requirements, and growth, a technology partner can help you action these insights. That means reduced hiring hassles and dedicated development experts from day one.

A tech stack for every scenario

We help you define — and then implement — a resilient and high-performance architecture that keeps pace with technology, market, and business change.
