Our Approach

One of the most significant milestones for a startup is getting to the inflection point in the hockey stick shaped growth curve when a product’s traction starts rapidly growing (Product/Market Fit).  Most companies wander around aimlessly with extreme uncertainty until they reach this validation point.  It doesn’t need to be this way.  Rather than flounder around in the hope that you might stumble upon product market fit, you can systematically approach your business and develop a solid business model before you run out of resources.

We use a simple three step systematic process to quickly bring clarity to your business, validate your business, and position yourself for growth.  To do this, you will shift your mindset from thinking about the output of your efforts as being a product, to being a business model.

DESIGN

  • Take your product idea and design a lean business model around it in 20 minutes.  
  • Test your model and assumptions to avoid common pitfalls. 
  • Communicate clearly about your business to excite customers, partners, and investors

Validate

  • Use Lean principles to Iteratively validate your business model
  • Test demand for your product
  • Secure paying customers without having built a thing

Grow

  • Launch MVP
  • Staged data driven launches to remove the greatest risks in your business model
  • Iterate quickly toward Product/Market fit
  • Rocket like growth

Do you have a great idea that is gathering dust because you don’t know how to bring it to life?

It doesn’t help to be constantly reminded that most products end up failing.

 

  • What if you could test the viabilty of your idea before committing yourself and your resources fully?

  • What if you could find traction (aka paying customers) for your product even before building it?

  • What if you could de-risk your idea, build a team, and green light your project?
