You’ve had the brainstorm, jotted down the idea (maybe even on the back of a napkin) and now you are thinking about forming a company. The best way to lay the proper foundation is proving that there is a need and a market for your idea, and that starts with taking time to ensure you can articulate the value, prove the need, and identify who the first buyers for this product will be and what they will pay.

Development Stage

You’ve validated your product and market and understand the nuances of what you’ll need to build to get your minimum viable product, or MVP, out the door. Now it’s time to go all-in on building your product, designing a go-to-market strategy and developing the operational backbone that will support you as you drive toward launch (and paying customers).

In its simplest form, your launch should focus on getting people to use your product, either in paid or pilot agreements. This is your first real chance to tangibly validate all the work you’ve done to date, providing you the opportunity to test your assumptions around value propositions, buying cycles, product functionality and user demands.
