This could be one approach:

  1. THE SCOPE: dive into your vision.
    The first step of this immersive journey starts with a deep understanding over your vision’s details. Choose ONLY the core features that you need in order to validate your main value proposition. These features are those that will be later designed and developed.
    OUTPUT from this step: Stakeholder Analysis, User Stories
  2. PRODUCT STUDY: design with a purpose.
    With the scope closed in the previous step, the product phase starts. Develop the product design in 2 simple steps: UX wireframes, UI mockups.
    OUTPUT from this step: UX wireframes; UI mockups.
  3. DEVELOPMENT: code is poetry!
    The process starts with definition of the tech framework, then develop the backend structure and as soon as design is closed, start the frontend.
    OUTPUT: App Deploy on a test enviroment, Code Repository
  4. TEST & GO: the liftoff.
    At this stage your app is done but not ready. First you test your product among your friends and family. Fix the bugs (if any).
    Now the App is ready to be launched (technically wise). Rock on!
    (PS. Of course to have a proper launch you need a very well crafted Marketing/Sales plan).
    OUTPUT: App Deploy on a production enviroment, Code Repository

As long as you are sure you want an MVP (Minimum Viable Product) then you have to be based on your original prototyping, find the technology your team is more proficient with and develop only the most basic feature.

At first, forget bells and whistles. Focus on functionality and deliverability. Inject a lot of check points (logs, stats, analytics) so that you can measure user involvement. This way, an MVP will grow to be a successful product.
