If you want to build a startup that heavily relies on a web application or website, you need the help of a multidisciplinary development team. Period.
If you don’t trust this, let us explain this assertion. As the person responsible for a startup you are dealing with the enormous challenge of keeping the business running; get your first clients, make alliances with peer companies, and think about short term goals (and long term strategy?). These are the things you should must pay attention to when you are in that position, but you know that your business needs strong web support… so, how can you deal with both things?
Our humble opinion is that you need the help of a dedicated team to take care of the development (or at least advise you on how to do it). Think about basic requirements, things that common users expect for any website:
Those things are only basic requirements, so the development also has to add your business specific set of features or functionalities. Now, imagine yourself making all this huge effort plus the ones inherent to the beginning of a new business. Just impossible.
Even if you have software development skills or your business is about software development, you can’t be an expert in all these topics. Startup people usually have many roles and try to do everything by themselves (mainly because of their initially low budget). But in this case, I strongly advise to not do it. If you aren’t convinced yet, I can get a little technical to get to the point, explaining the knowledge you need to master.
I want to end this post repeating my advice, hoping that you were convinced after my technical explanation (full of apparently buzzy words): ask for help from a multidisciplinary software development team that has the discussed knowledge and the experience of putting all of these things together.
