Design for Startups
Giving startups the best launchpad
Your vision, our support
Pioneering startups are the lifeblood of innovation. And so we want to help them as much as possible. Many startups have a game-changing idea but need additional knowledge, expertise, and external support to take their idea to market.
That’s where we come in, helping you define market fit, develop your proposition, deliver an MVP, and ultimately scale. We also develop your proposition, prototype your product or service, and give you the physical tools to help you along the way.
A risk sharing approach
We also understand that startups don’t often have the resources to engage an experienced design consultancy. So instead of asking for upfront payment, we can work flexibly using royalty agreements, shares, or other arrangements.
It means you get all of our insight, expertise, and creativity without draining your resources at such an early and crucial stage in your business’s life. The smallest investment in time and money with the biggest returns
We approached Tangerine having a spent a few years developing the TOPL anti-spill cup. We’d worked with another design studio, but they just hadn’t cracked the right solution for the mechanical lid. Tangerine’s design and engineering expertise helped us to solve complex manufacturing issues for production, enabling us to improve the cups’ performance and deliver a great product for our customers. We’re excited to now be working together, on a risk sharing basis, developing innovative new line extensions for a host of potential customers.
