Got an idea? Make it a reality for a fraction of the price. The complete guide to launching your idea via outsourcing.

What do Slack, Skype, Fab, Klout, and GitHub have in common? They all started by outsourcing their product development. They didn’t have technical founders, they didn’t recruit a team of in-house engineers, and they didn’t have gigantic development budgets. Oh, and did I mention that they’re now collectively worth over 20 billion dollars?
