About Headway

The product development partner to help your tech startup and product team grow faster.

Our story

For startups, by startups

We’re previous B2B SaaS founders who’ve launched dozens of startups prior to Headway. We helped build early products, raise VC funding, and were responsible for finding teams to bring us forward faster.

We found a lot of vendors in a sea of agencies, and no true partners.

We wanted someone who would work with us to solve the most critical problems in both the business and the tech, then help us craft the right approaches and put the best processes in place to get it done.

That's why we started Headway; To be the partner to you that we previously needed. To help you learn from your market. To make decisions with you, and have the right systems in place to iterate and move quickly.

A product development agency? Venture studio? Investors? The founders we partner with consider us their seal team. The investors we work with call us a venture studio for hire.

We bring our passion for building startups, our focus on craft, and the discipline to achieve the balance of all three that drives businesses forward.

We’re a world-class digital product team for hire. Strategy, design, and development - combined. Just like a startup in the wild.

Core values

Growth mindset

Teachable. Teach others. To make progress, we must establish an insatiable appetite for increased knowledge. We grow when our people remain teachable and we embrace our role to continually share our collective knowledge.

People focused

Crew, clients, customers, and community. We value people, their perspectives, and the problems we can help them overcome. You are not your work, but you bring something unique and powerful to it.

Self motivated

Take initiative. Ask where you can help. Moving ourselves, our mission, and our clients forward is important. If something is broken, take ownership and see that a better solution gets put in place. Look for more opportunities to create value and pitch in.


Everyone is heard. Everyone is a servant leader. Our compass is set to what works and moves us forward collectively. Great ideas and initiatives can come from anywhere, so everyone's voice is heard.


Intentional practice. Deliver value within given constraints and context. Through intentional practice, experience, and a comprehensive understanding of each project's constraints, our craft expands. This empowers us to make the most valuable decisions.


How we work

Do you only help with new products?

We have expertise helping new products get to market, AND helping established companies level up their products, systems, and approaches to make them more successful.

Do you work with corporate innovation teams too?

We do! We help bring all sorts of new ideas to market and keep them there. We’ve worked with dozens of corporate teams to launch new ideas to market based on their operational insights and bring their unique internal tooling to the broader market.

We help corporations use their unique insights and perspective to build market-changing products.

What do you specialize in?

We specialize in making complex B2B SaaS products simple. We have experience and expertise in Logistics and Supply Chain, Healthcare, FinTech, and EdTech. Most products have heavy data, permissions, and high-volume that need to be solved at scale.

We help bring consumer level experiences to enterprise-grade software. Security, compliance, concurrency.

What aspects of product development do you help with?

From figuring out who the right customer is, defining their problems, and validating their needs - to designing and developing the best solutions, we can help with full-cycle product development.

How do you collaborate with our full-time team?

We help elevate and empower your team through constant communication. That means daily standups, weekly reviews and planning. We also spin up a shared Slack channel between us, collaborate in Figma, send async updates through Loom and leverage Notion dashboards to connect everything.

Do you work with other agencies?

We do! Not every agency has the expertise across all facets of product like we do, so we often partner with a single-track agency that does only design, or only dev, or only product - and fill in the gaps to bring the full product to market.

We’ll also join alongside your team and can subcontract when it makes sense for overflow work in your core discipline.

How can we start a project together?

You'll learn all the specifics when we chat. We have expertise across all facets of startups - from product strategy, to design, to engineering.

The first step is to schedule a free consultation. We’ll learn about where you are today and talk about what your goals are for the next 3-6-12 months.

From there, we’ll deep dive on any specifics and then craft a customized proposal that includes:

• Overview of the project
• A timeline plan for the first 4-6 weeks
• The team mix and roles needed
• Level of investment
• Availability

How much do projects usually cost?

Our packages start at low thousands, while our customized services typically start around $25k and go up from there.

How do you structure projects?

Our projects are structured based on your current team, your current state, and your goals and constraints. We like to name our constraints (typically timeline, and budget), so we can be as creative as possible with how we partner and get you there.

Based those factors, we craft product and project teams around the effort spread across product strategy, design, and development disciplines.

All of those are surrounded by lean principles and agile methodologies that keeps the team iterating and adapting as we learn new things.

Still have questions?

We understand that every person and problem is unique. Let us know what else is on your mind.
