What's an MVP?

MVP stands for Minimum Viable Product, and refers to the simplest form of your product that you would feel comfortable releasing to a public audience. An MVP is more mature than a prototype, but is less complete than a launch-ready product might be.

Breaking the cycle

One of the biggest challenges that face non-technical startup teams is that of getting to the MVP stage. The cost of hiring developers out of personal funds can be prohibitive, and top-tier developers are reluctant to work for mere equity (plus they receive countless such offers).


This is where Convergence enters the equation.

We are able to offer flexible terms to select startups that require a reduced cash commitment up front.


Let's chat about how to reach your goals.

The MVP program isn’t a one‑size‑fits‑all solution. Your business’ development needs, fundraising goals and execution plan are all taken into consideration.

As a tech business, you have software needs. That’s why you’re reaching out to us! Quickly go over (at a high level) what you envision your MVP product will look like. For example, your product might require apps for both Android and iOS, a supporting back-end system and a simple informational website.

Your primary reason for needing an MVP is to raise your next (and perhaps first) round of money. Explain to use what your plans and needs are for this post-MVP fundraising attempt.
