Come up with a lean way to validate your assumptions
Before investing time and money into a dedicated development team, it's important to test your key assumptions about your users' needs, the market and technical constraints. Do people really experience this problem and if so, are they willing to pay for a solution? Create a demo video of a future product and an invite-only waitlist to see how many people sign up. Buy your potential customer a coffee and ask some questions about their current situation. Get creative and collect helpful insights that will shape your MVP.
