Startup Support

Do you need this?

You are a startup under 3 years old and have a digital element to your business. You need to focus on the core business and not worry about how the technology works but what it does for your end users.

You may still be in the process of raising money and have questions about timescales and cost. You may not have finished fleshing out your own team yet but know you need to get started. You may just want some support in the early stages while you get setup.

How we help

We can help plan your roadmap from a technology perspective. We know what good looks like and how to navigate technical landscapes.

We know what is possible with a small team in shorter timescales where you are balancing keeping everyone happy yet still delivering on the technical side. Launching using a modern tech stack is often possible with generous free tiers without compromising on quality.

Why Slate?

We have helped numerous startups with fixed cost projects that get them to a launch state. We are honest and not afraid to cut the bull and talk straight.

We can help identify the right approach using our years of experience working with startups including some of our own. We know how to manage stakeholders expectations and understand that technical anxiety is a thing!

What's the cost?

Often a business depends on digital expertise and can be considered a 'software company' even though the main line of business is far from it.

Partnering with Slate can have significant cost savings by using proven approaches backed by real world experience but still retaining the IP rights to what we produce together. We are competitive on price and it usually takes us no longer than a week to respond with a well-researched path to success.
