Our development teams can turn your ideas for a website or app into reality. From UI/UX design to building your MVP, we can help you build your idea from the ground up or help you update an existing project. When you work with The Portal, you work with a whole team. Alongside our developers, we provide designers, a CTO, a project manager, and other senior staff to manage your project from start to finish.
To get started, we’ll ask you to fill out this form.
After we receive your form, we’ll contact you with some follow-up questions so we can learn more about your project.
Once we have all the details, we’ll send you a scope of work and get started!
You'll get highly personalized, one-on-one time with a real-world, been-there-done-that investor to discuss any part of your business — including funding, pitching, planning, business models, marketing strategy, etc.
K5 and The Portal has expert guidance that will make your company viable and visible.
The Startup Check-up
Just like you need an annual checkup with your doctor, your business needs a seasoned practitioner to check your “vitals” and ensure you’re doing the right things to keep your startup healthy.
Ray will spend an hour with you to discuss your business plan, go over your pitch, or provide insights about another aspect of your startup (such as due diligence preparation, funding strategy, networking, mentorship, and just about anything your startup is interested in).
You'll receive specific and customized feedback regarding your projects and suggested next steps. These hour-long checkups are designed to help new startups verify what they're doing and to give a unique map to success. The result is that you’ll walk away with a customized list of actionable items to bring your startup to the next level.
In order to get started, all we request is that you make a donation to The Portal, a non-profit providing a local resource for Orange County businesses and startups. And in return, you’ll have a startup check-up that helps ensure the ongoing health of your business.
