Work with a UI designer to first construct the look and feel of your screens (assuming this is a web based application). Assuming you know the functionality you want, this shouldn't be too hard.


After that, you can use no code / low code systems to put together a quick v1 to test your product market fit, do demos, etc. The most popular of these no code / low code systems is Out Systems but there are others (that are cheaper). You'll still need to get a good developer (ideally one who is well versed with these NCLC systems. Try finding one on upwork.

Forgive me if you've already thought about this, but before diving into coding/building something you can save a lot of effort of you have captured the user flows correctly - I wrote a post on it here:

After that, it really depends on exactly what you are trying to build. Out Systems do a free version for 1 developer and a few other restrictions - fine for a prototype but after that it gets a bit expensive for startups.
