How MVP Masters helped Lakestream become the leading SaaS product for commercial real-esate in Africa
Lakestream is a prime example of how a visionary B2B product can revolutionize corporate workflows. The challenge was immense: to replace multiple traditional business tools with a single, unified platform, tailored to diverse corporate needs, all within a stringent budget and timeframe.

Client's Vision: Streamlining Corporate Workflows
Munya, the driving force behind LakeStream, approached us with a transformative idea to overhaul traditional business processes. His vision was to create a platform that consolidates various functionalities, from basic pen & paper operations to complex digital tasks, into a single, efficient workflow system.
Challenges: High Standards and Diverse Needs
The main hurdle in developing Lakestream was the high acceptance standard expected of a B2B product, coupled with the need to accommodate varied and specific business workflows. Achieving this, especially with a limited budget of $30K and a three-month deadline, was a formidable task.
Our Strategy: Focused Development and Market Adaptation
Understanding the unique challenges, we began with an in-depth exploration of the industry and user needs, particularly focusing on Real Estate Investment Funds. Our strategy was to identify and prioritize core functionalities essential for early adopters.
Solution Development: Crafting a Tailored MVP
- Feature Optimization: We rigorously evaluated Munya's extensive feature list, narrowing it down to essential elements necessary for the MVP.
- Design Transformation: Munya's initial low-fidelity wireframes were transformed into high-fidelity designs, concentrating on these core features.
- Efficient Engineering: A single Startup Engineer was assigned, who successfully delivered a commercial-ready MVP version of Lakestream in just three months.
Value Delivered: Cost-Effective and Swift Market Entry
Instead of an exorbitant development cost, we provided Munya with a market-ready product within his $30K budget. This approach enabled LakeStream to launch and begin sales in a quarter of the usual time. Within a week of its launch, LakeStream successfully onboarded two Investment Funds, affirming the product's market fit and value proposition.
MVP Masters were able to deliver a very complex commercial-ready MVP within 3 months and a limited budget. As a result we were able to onboard two paying clients within the first week of launching.
