Why Choose Us?
We are not an Agency. We are a Digital Product Studio.
What we do differently
Building digital products is hard...
… if you don’t have the right partner at hand. Depending on your situation, you might feel you have to hire an agency or a team of freelancers. Is that a good idea? Let’s look at the main risks.
Unclear time & effort
The money and effort required often is underestimated. This leads to false promises and disappointment on both sides – and often to failed projects. More features does not mean a better product!
High stakes and one-sided risks
In addition to the money and effort required, often the companies future (as well as the project managers career) is at risk if a project fails. Having a strong partner with a common goal on your side will be the crucial element for success.
Not knowing a better way, companies often resort to agencies to develop their product. But agencies are order takers. While they often will develop an error free and usable products, their main objective is usually not the partners success but the fulfilment of their contract.
With us, it becomes a breeze
Our idea of a successful digital collaboration is different. We will not simply gather your requirements. We will deeply involve into the process of finding the right product for you and your customers. Fully committed from the start.
A clearly defined MVP
A lean and easy-to-use initial product are requirements for long-term success. We give realistic expectations and resort to finding and implementing the most valuable core functionalities.
Shared risks and profits
In our experience, superior results require commitment from both sides. We are entrepreneurs, and thus we always open for a risk-sharing model that ensures that we are always pulling in the same direction.
Results and long-term partnership
We are interested in your long-term success. Thus, trust and common goals are some of the main requirements when working with a partner. That means we will also say no to things you want to build if we are not convinced. We will help you with the process of finding the optimal features for you and your customers. So you don’t have to waste time and money on features that nobody wants.
The Difference Between an Agency and a Digital Product Studio
When you’re ready to turn your idea into a fully-functional digital product, what is your next step? Many companies start looking for an agency to help them with coding and development. But, working with an agency might be a significant mistake.
When you hire an agency, it is up to you to provide all of the details about your idea. Agencies are order takers, not idea shapers. A good agency will take your idea and develop the app you have described. The code will be stable and bug-free.
However, the end product might be a mess. Nobody at the agency is in charge of asking tough questions like:
- Does this app solve a real problem?
- Is this digital product a good fit for the market?
- What value does this product provide to the user?
- What are the necessary features for the first version of the product (MVP)?
In other words, agencies often create technically proficient digital products that do not serve the market.
Here at Venture Leap, we take a different approach. Instead of working as an agency for companies developing digital products, we are a digital product studio. We don’t just build whatever we are told. We will challenge your ideas and evaluate them based on early user feedback. That allows us to build web applications and mobile apps that a real demand in the market. Together.
Agencies Are Order Takers, We Are Your Creative Partner

We ask the tough questions so that you don’t waste time and money on something that your target market will just ignore.
