There are a lot of options to get your idea off the ground into a business, and unfortunately some of them will lead you nowhere. Even before you choose a business entity, take a check from friends and family, or deputize a CTO, you need to insure that your idea is worth investing your own time and resources into. Here are some of the things you need to validate early on before you get yourself into a spin without any revenue:
Is the problem worth solving?
Will someone pay for a solution?
Can you reach your market and explain the product value clearly?
Can a sample audience envision using it?
Imagine, testing all of this before a single line of code is written.
And there’s a reason I used the word “testing” here. You can think it up all you want, but until your idea holds water with paying customers and investors, you aren’t getting anywhere. Get out of the building (virtually or otherwise), and see what prospective customers will pay for.
