A right developer with good skills can help startups by understanding their exact requirement , suggesting them with the possibilities and can help you implement perfect technology , languages , API integration and platform .
As it is a startup the best strategy is to use mature frameworks which will save development time as they usually comes with multiple modules and works right out of the box . If you are still willing to use latest unstable releases of technology , then get ready to face challenges !

Your design should be clear and simple enough in terms of everyone usability . The design will aid software developers crystal clear view of how your software is suppose to be work.
- You should also have to forecast about pitfalls that may arise during developmental process . This could range from reliability , functionality , time and cost .
If your idea is budget constraint ( which is usually the case with most of the startups if they are not funded ) then the best option is to focus on one core thing with minimum viable product (MVP) . The purpose of MVP is to demonstrate your idea to investors . Once you are launched with the very first version of it , you can start polishing and expanding after successful release .
