Introduce your business and what you do there.

3 Key Collective is a small startup based in Sparta, New Jersey that builds mobile apps.


What challenge were you trying to address with Sunflower Lab?

We wanted to make an app called eLeague to organize pickup games and recreational sports events.


What was the scope of their involvement?

We wanted a clean user interface and a game section that would be easy to navigate. We needed a backend that would save information about the users because eventually, we want to be able to pinpoint what sports are the most popular in which state. That information can be valuable to a sporting goods store. Our first build was just for iOS applications, and then we moved onto Android later. We want it to be available for all mobile platforms.

How did you come to work with Sunflower Lab?

We looked at several different development companies and got quotes from them. Sunflower Lab was the first to help us and stayed connected with us. They had a price point that we could afford.

How much have you invested with Sunflower Lab?

We have spent $50,000 on the project so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working with them in the fall of 2015, and the work is ongoing. The MVP [minimum viable product] was completed in one month.

Results & Feedback

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

When we first built the app, we launched without issue to the iPhone. We didn’t market very much but were still growing at about 5–10 users a day. Right now, we have 2,000 users on the app. We first marketed the app only through Facebook and Instagram but recently created a YouTube channel to document tournaments and other events. The app is steadily growing by word of mouth and the “invite friends” feature.

How did Sunflower Lab perform from a project management standpoint?

They are very efficient. We communicate through email, text, phone calls, and occasionally in person. My partner and I have day jobs as we work on this startup, so Yash Patel, the CTO, has been willing to meet with us at odd hours whenever we’re available. Whenever we have an issue, the updates are made within a day or two. There’s always good communication, and they’ve managed everything really well. They use Google Sheets to show updates and the status of tasks.

What did you find most impressive about Sunflower Lab?

Communication is their strength, especially for me as I’m a non-technical founder. It’s great to be in constant contact with them and be updated on what’s happening currently with the app. We come up with new ideas, and they let us know what they’ll need to be able to fully execute those ideas. The app came out beautifully. Everything functions well. I’m happy with the whole process.

Are there any areas Sunflower Lab could improve?

Nothing stands out as a flaw in the process.
