Our Mission

We want to build Europe's most compelling digital product and venture builder - empowering both enterprises and entrepreneurs.

Our Story

Reinventing the digital agency

Since 2017 we help organizations execute their digital transformation at start-up speed by combining our expertise from entrepreneurship, design, consulting and engineering with lean and agile processes and high-performing, scalable delivery teams.

Founded by tech entrepreneur Philipp Petrescu, our original focus has been on “fixing” software development: From our experience most digital innovation initiatives either get stuck on a conceptual slide level or end up with subpar design or tech implementation. Our minimal viable product (“MVP”) was to enable organizations - from start-ups to enterprises - to build better software and so we’ve built a lot.

Growing with our clients, we broadened our service offering continuously: Starting to validate ideas before building them. Coming up with “the right” ideas in the first place. Providing strategic guidance on how to think about digital innovation or how to standardize and scale its process. Scaling products globally while improving their conversions. And ultimately not only building products but also full ventures around them including its governance and teams.

Whatever we do we always work as cross-functional, agile teams that think entrepreneurial and act pragmatically, focussed on creating an impact for our clients, regardless whether we work with global enterprises or early stage start-ups.

We create value through products not slides, are acting as builders not consultants and leverage the future of work.

Our Extended Team

Superpowers driven by the Future of Work

One of our core believes at MVP Factory is that the Future of Work is liquid and hybrid. By liquid we mean that your workforce potential is broader than just for own employees if you start to consider freelancers as well. And by hybrid we mean that - depending on the activity - on-site and remote working are being combined.

We live by that belief and leverage our proprietary network of vetted technology freelancers - both on our projects and internally. For our clients this means faster and more efficient delivery while always working with domain experts. And for us it means being able to stay lean and agile while growing fast.

We are very passionate about driving this change also within our clients - so feel free to talk to us if you want to make your workforce future proof. We are even so passionate that we have built two companies around that: Match and Wunderforce.

MVPF Ventures

We fund and partner with exceptional founders to get them from 0 to 1

Since we are entrepreneurial, we get hooked when meeting the right founders tackling a market or problem we are passionate about (currently: Future of Work, B2B SaaS, Sustainability, DeFi).

So occasionally we act as an 'angel investor with super powers', supporting founders hands-on in designing and building their MVPs, validating their go-to-market strategy, scaling their tech teams or providing access to our client base.

Location

We have our heart in Berlin, and feet all over the world.

At MVP Factory, we believe that geography is one of the greatest limitations to innovation and growth. Building a hybrid company (part on-site, part remote), we have team members all around the world, for instance in Malaga, Bucharest, Johannesburg, and Buenos Aires. And before Covid we regularly brought everyone together during our "Workations" in Tel Aviv and Cape Town.

With our headquarter located in the iconic "Treptower" in Berlin our team is connected to the city's famous electronic music scene (e.g. hosting a party during Tech Open Air or streaming from our office) , supporting during Covid with the Tech4Artists program.

Currently our team is supporting the #wirfürschule hackathon and the Digital Response initiative.

We are a member of Bitkom and maintain a broad professional IT services insurance.
