WE INVEST IN GIVING YOUR PEOPLE’S IDEAS A CHANCE.

WHERE DO YOU FIND THAT ONE IDEA THAT CAN ACCELERATE THE DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION OF YOUR BUSINESS?

WE BELIEVE YOU ALREADY HAVE IT - LIVING IN THE MINDS OF YOUR OWN PEOPLE.

BUT THIS IDEA CAN ONLY BE GREAT IF IT IS RAPIDLY PUT INTO ACTION AT THE MOMENT IT IS FIRST DISCOVERED.

ZERO-TO-SIXTY DEVELOPMENT MODEL

Our Zero-to-Sixty development model was designed to rapidly develop and tests your ideas to become valuable digital products.

It was created by combining the techniques our founders applied as they bootstrapped the creation of one of Canada’s largest advertising agencies and used to successfully develop, bring to market and exit several digital products.

Our background has always been centered on bringing our new ideas to life and to scale and from these experiences we together as proven iterators had our best idea yet - to forget about our own ideas and focus on yours.

Everything we do is about how to stay nimble and always be prepared to dive into the unknown. We scribble the letters GTD on places we can see to remind us of our number one rule to - get things done.

We stay constantly curious and never rely on traditional learning methods and instead we include our own method of tasked based learning into everything we do, to allow our team to always be able to work with an unlimited range of changing technologies to build everything from AI driven chatbots to distributed applications and who knows what next year.

We are always open and transparent about our business model and our processes without the fear of being duplicated, we actually encourage it because having complete collaboration with our partners is embedded in our DNA.

Our Process

1: Discovery

Whiteboard Session
Timeline: 1 to 2 Hours/Session
Cost: Discovery Loft’s Own Investment (No Obligation)

Invite us to meet with your team to facilitate an open whiteboard session. This highly interactive session explores your team’s ambitions and ideas for developing a new technology that can transform your business.

Our goal from this session is to discovery that one idea that gets everyone in the room excited. Once found, we take the idea back to our team to create a concept of how it can be implemented today and we begin to research how to rapidly get it developed.

2: THE IDEA

Demo a Living Prototype
Timeline: 2 to 3 Weeks
Cost: Discovery Loft’s Own Investment (No Obligation)

In the next 2 to 3 weeks we keep in close contact with your team and return with a live prototype and a product development strategy. The prototype is a micro version as living code of the idea that we design to demonstrate the capabilities and allow it to be shared and reviewed internally with your organization.

At this point we work with you in developing the product’s business case and approval for moving forward on a proof of concept.

3: ZERO-TO-ONE

Proof of Concept
Timeline: 5 - 8 Weeks
Cost: Shared Risk / $ Depends on Scope

The idea is now deployed as of a proof of concept that expands the prototype to become a minimum version of the product used in a controlled test to validate the idea.

This is also when we review the business plan and finalize our partnership for developing and bringing the product to market.

4: Launch

Launch Alpha Product
Timeline: Depends on scope
Cost: Shared Risk / $ Depends on Scope

With a positive test result from the proof of concept, we move forward with the development and alpha release of the product.

5: ONE-TO-SIXTY

Evolve the Product
Timeline: Depends on scope
Cost: Shared Risk / $ Depends on Scope

As we gain real world knowledge by closely monitoring users and tracking results, we continue to iterate and grow the product with improved functionality and capabilities.

Near the end of this stage, we begin the process of migrating the product over to your own core development team or we start to set up a new core team to allow our Zero-to-Sixty team to stay focused on launching other new products.
