I can’t help very much until I know what you’re trying to build. But if it’s an innovation-driven business, often the first step is to determine the feasibility of your business-model; that is, can you build it, is there a market for it, and can you reach the market?
Sometimes you don’t actually need to develop the product in order to learn if there’s a market for it. For example, if I wanted to make a business selling a book on Meteor Testing, I could write a few sample chapters and then take pre-orders for the book. This allows me to learn something about the demand for such a product without having to actually write the whole book in advance.
Often developers like to rush into building things, but as an entrepreneur of an innovation-driven business, your fundamental problem is the search for a sustainable business model. And that often involves “getting out of the building” and talking to prospective customers to validate your assumptions before jumping into product development.
So first I’d like to know what the ideas is, then we’d probably want to work on trying to validate some of the assumptions behind this new business idea.
