The Challenge

When you have something you want to get developed, designed or created – whether you’re a startup or scale-up, an entrepreneur, or a well-established business – you likely have the same questions…




  • Startling was created to provide independent, impartial analysis for your ideas

    We use our tried and tested process to create logical designs and specifications. We use these to gather accurate costs. 

  • We believe in starting small

    Minimal viable products (MVPs) and staying lean, in delivering just the right amount to get you to market with the best chance of success. We are very proud to maintain a 100% satisfaction rate for the specifications we create!

  • Our process supports ideas all the way through to development and launch

    We use our knowledge of your project to gather accurate quotes from our wide network of freelancers and development agencies across the region, or to brief your internal teams. We support your project all the way through to launch.

  • Everything begins with a free workshop

    Face to face or online – to discuss your ideas and goals. Sign up for yours below!
