DDProgram: Develator Digital Program
​Main Features


​Feature 1: Digital.

DDP projects must be Digital (Internet platforms, Apps, Big Data, Fintech, etc…):

  • because these are usually less expensive to develop; 

  • because these are the most scalable; 

  • because these can be developed remotely.

Feature 2: Co-Founders.

Who would be a good fit as co-founder for our DDP projects:

  • projects' co-founders shall possibly be international and from different countries (initially this might be challenging but we believe it can turn into a great competitive advantage);

  • co-funders must be economically self-sufficent, and possibly work at projects during the weekend or off-office hours. This because there will  be no revenues nore incomes initially, so we prefer to have startup co-founders who already have an income and are willing and free to develop the startup properly, without rush, and because they believe in the project.


Feature 3: Written Communications.

Co-founders must develop projects and communicate per written (or at least recorded messages/meetings), using tools like Slack, Trello and other ones:

  • because it’s the best way to avoid misunderstandings and to have a good quality system in place;

  • because it’s the best way to communicate and leave everyone able to contribute whenever possible, even during busy days; 

  • because it’s a great solution for international teams that work remotely and from different countries and time zones (as we want to be)

Feature 4: Lean Startup.

The projects are meant to be developed with the Lean Startup Model, usually with the following steps:

  • Design Sprints

  • Minimum Viable Product

  • Testing and Validation

  • eventual Funding and eventual Incorporation

Feature 5: AZEPS (Almost Zero Expenses Projects' Startup).

Nobody wants to put too much money for a very risky project, and only some of these projects might be finally great businesses. So our aim is to keep expenses very close to zero, possibly launch and test-out as many projects as possible.  How:

  • pre-incorporation agreements (the incorporation of a limited company will be done only when needed);

  • working remotely, without renting office or workspaces

  • using internet collaboration tools mainly free (or free for an initial period thanks to agreements with providers and suppliers);

  • using co-founders or, eventually, success-fee systems, trying to involve external professionals and companies into the business.

Feature 6: London, UK, international environment.

The startups must be incorporated initially in the UK:

  • because it’s most world centred place;

  • because it’s well recognised by investors

  • because companies regulations are quite easy and flexible;

  • because we are a limited company based and registered in the UK.
