It’s all about the team, the team and the team.
Yes, With evey team member has day job and family, start up work needs to be as effective as possible whenver each person is working and collaboring to finish several timelines and milestones.
We have been struggling with collaboration tools, both mobile and desktop, at the same time, trying to map our product road map (vision, mission) with the deail proudct development timeline, in other words, MVP (Minimum Viable Product). You can read definition of MVP here. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minimum_viable_product
So one side of the scale has the right choice of collaboration tools, the other side has Product road map with the right choice of Project Management (both methodology as well as handling tool).
Since we are bootstrapping (http://www.investopedia.com/terms/b/bootstrap.asp) , we are not looking for seeding or funding (http://www.investopedia.com/terms/s/seedcapital.asp) at the moment, searching for free and quality tools have been pain in the ass. Hopefully, below illustrated mechanism would evolve and mature while we grow further.
Here is a glance of our collaboration mechanism. Picture says a thousand word…
P.S all credit goes to all our founding team memebers for tireless searching of the right and the fittest tool for our startup.
