The market research is done now looking to hire someone two develop MVP. I have to queries; First: should I hire a development team or freelancers to develop the idea? Second: After development, QA and release do I need a development team on permanent payroll for support?
As a pre-MVP startup, I would recommend the following for the MVP
1. Hire a co-founder who can help you build the MVP
2. Hire freelancers to build the MVP. If you do with this option, you will have to be extremely clear on what you want done or can be a huge $ and time sink. Some of the freelance websites that have worked well for me are Toptal (surprisingly good talent here!), Fiverr and Upwork.
