Custom Software for Startups

Software Development for the
Early Stage of Business

Establishing a solid foundation for your startup is the key to long-term success, and for many of today’s growing businesses, that foundation includes easy-to-use and reliable software.

Flawed or poorly designed software can alienate both users and investors, leaving the future of your new business in peril.

A software development team that is familiar with the complexities of native and web applications, technology trends, and end-user needs is paramount to your success.

We can help your startup create purpose-driven software that will meet the needs of your business, customers, and clients both now and in the future.

The DADEN Difference:

Custom Software Your Startup Can Depend On

When you work with DADEN, you gain more than a software development firm. You gain a team of highly-skilled, trusted partners that can help you realize your goals, manage workflows, and create an application that showcases your brand. 

Additionally, our leadership team has experience “in the trenches” as entrepreneurs, and understands the challenges of your journey. We relate to the entrepreneurial journey, extending our resources and connections so you can further succeed. From connecting you to investors we know or presentation opportunities, we offer more than just software development for startups.

Transparent Communication

Far too often, software development firms remove the client from the equation, creating an end product that misses the mark. From ideation to release, you can rest assured that we will maintain transparency and an open and ongoing line of communication. Your success is our utmost priority. Our team is committed to quickly and efficiently addressing all your questions and concerns and providing full transparency about expectations, costs, architecture decisions, and timelines.

Data Security

Whenever you partner with a firm or agency, your brand, intellectual property, and the future of your business are on the line. We make every effort to ensure that your data is secure during every part of the process. When you work with DADEN, you can rest assured that your application is built using the most up-to-date technical standards, regulations, and processes, including source-controlled systems and secured US-based workspaces for all our engineers. Remember, if you miss the mark on data security, you’ll pay the price forever.

Cost-Effective Development

Software development is an investment that can yield long-term results, but only if it’s done right the first time. Anything less can lead to deep-rooted, long-term structural issues that can erode your bottom line, stall your project before it starts, and quickly turn away users and investors alike. At DADEN, we recognize the value of your investment. Our 7-Step Process ensures that the final product meets and exceeds your expectations and results in a cost-effective foundation that you can build off of for years to come.


Relationships matter. When we partner with a client, their goals become our goals. That’s why we offer more than a path to an application. We bring to the table 24/7 support, a bug-free guarantee, and a committed team of engineers, and experienced project managers that are dedicated to your success. Whether you’re building an app to handle internal workflows or a hub for customers and clients, we’ll be with you every part of the way.


So many startups are forced to choose between immediate needs and long-term viability, but we don’t believe that’s a concession any brand should make. Managing the software needs of a growing company means building an app that can grow as a business grows. We know the dynamics of your brand will change over time, and that requires a scalable software application that can accommodate ever-evolving needs. At DADEN, scalability isn’t just an afterthought; it’s a core principle that guides our process from day one.

A Startup Success Story

Burn Return Logo Custom Mobile App


Industries: Fintech, Lifestyle, Health and Fitness    |     Business Class: Startup

The fitness industry is filled with apps and online tools that promise users an easier way to stay motivated, but not all apps deliver. Burn Return wanted to change that by offering a financial reward for users who were dedicated to their physical well-being.

While many off-the-shelf CRMs can provide some level of customizations, AMPCO required one that could accommodate the intricate demands and customizations required to fulfill the needs of construction clients.

Together, we created AMPlify CRM, an application that allows AMPCO to seamlessly move clients from qualification to contract close while also making it easy to track assets, analyze costs, and provide unparalleled project management.

What are the Startup benefits
of External Software Development?

When you’re growing a startup company, budgets can be tight. Hiring an in-house development team can be a significant financial burden, especially when you factor in recruitment, training, and retention.

Working with an external software development team gives you immediate access to a highly-skilled, experienced team without adding a significant, ongoing expense to the budget. You can scale resources when you need to, and reduce them when you’re focused on another area of your growing business.

Here are just a few benefits that you can expect when you partner with DADEN:
  • Strong foundational design for a solid start and scalable future.
  • Expert partners to help you build and scale your business.
  • Strong workflow to keep your goals on track.
  • A long-term partner during each stage of growth.
  • Access to highly-skilled developers and project managers.
  • Valuable industry knowledge and insights.
  • Satisfied customers, clients, and investors.

How Much does Custom Startup Software Development Cost?

Startup software development is one of the most important investments you’ll make for your growing company. The initial costs of development can lead to strong, long-term revenue growth, but how much capital do you really need?

At DADEN, we recognize that each client and project is unique.


Your estimate should reflect that truth. During our first meeting, we’ll discuss your immediate and long-term needs, outline expectations and requirements, and work alongside you to create a feasible plan forward. At the end, we’ll provide you with a customized estimate that reflects your business needs.
