What’s the secret to Big Kitty Labs?

As crazy as it may sound its simple, protobaking. Wait what the heck is protobaking? See one of our first presentations on the subject here.

You know what moves more than anything?  SPEED. When you apply SPEED to startup prototype development, it means stop thinking and start building. Big Kitty is all about SPEED. We broke our chops on iterative development madness. Essentially throwing out the old manual on how to build things and instead embraced iterative thinking. We’re willing to wager whatever requirements you have may they’ll be suspect to a fistful of assumptions- especially if you’re a startup. If they’re validated, sweet, you’ll be better off than others, if they’re not, doing exhaustive requirements is a waste of time and sadly money. We believe in fast iterative development based on what you think you need getting a prototype fleshed out faster so you can VALIDATE that need with real customers.

Protobaking says GO FASTER, GET DATA, LEARN, REPEAT, its at the heart of today’s lean startup movement.
