As different as startups can be, they all fundamentally follow the same path. 

Idea

Planning should be broad and focused on the size of the potential opportunity.

  • Is there a market?  How large is it? Would people pay for it?

Build

Turning the napkin drawing into a product or service requires expertise and early funding.

  • How to obtain funding?  How to find expertise?

Launch and Pivot

Gain feedback and change your offering based on that feedback.

  • How do you gather data? When to re-invent and when to realize it's just not there?

Model

Once you have acceptance, make sure there is an economic justification.

  • What competitive forces affect the sector?  How do rivals operate and succeed or fail?

Scale

You have a product, you have an economic model, now its time to roll.

  • Do you have the resources - functional and financial?
