Housed in the Northern Brewery historic office building in downtown Ann Arbor, MI, Alfa Jango, LLC is dedicated to helping your business grow and scale with web-based software and application development.
We work closely with startups to quickly grow and transition them to viable companies with minimal investment, by developing and building a successful Minimum Viable Product (MVP), and then quickly iterating thereafter.
And for our enterprise clients, we use this same lean methodology to build reliable, tested, scalable applications with minimal cost.

We'll take you from wherever you are in the startup planning process to having a solid outline and budget for building your Minimum Viable Product. This MVP will include what we'll build and more importantly what we won't build.
We build the MVP. (It's important to launch an MVP as quickly as possible).
Now that the MVP is launched,
the journey is getting started.
