As part of the Founder Institute’s continuing series of free online startup events for entrepreneurs worldwide, we were pleased to welcome Nelly Yusupova, Founder of TechSpeak for Entrepreneurs and fractional startup CTO, on May 18th for part 2 of this series on Product Development, where she discussed best practices for Lowering Product Development Costs. (You can see Part 1 here, on How to Build an MVP Without a Technical Co-Founder)

One of the biggest challenges many early-stage founders face is how to build a product on a limited budget. Many even MVP projects can encounter budget overruns, due to poor planning or communication, or a lack of technical knowledge and skills.

If you’d like to learn ways to develop your product successfully and without exceeding your budget, then watch this video where Nelly Yusupova shares her efficient and repeatable processes to manage teams that deliver projects on time and on budget.
