Customer Development – Market fit
You have the idea and realize it’s a good one. How do you go about checking if your customers will love it and use it over and over again? An idea is useless if it does not have customers. We help you identify and expand your customer base.
You need to protect you and your co-founders. Your idea/concept/service needs to be protected. A lot of “advisors” claim that there is no value for IP, hogwash!! Investors will use your IP (Not necessarily a patent) to value and validate your business!
An idea is useless until it starts generating revenue. We’ll help you identify different revenue channels! And most important of all, you will learn how to price your idea/service. No revenue stream, no business model, it’s that simple!
You’ve done your customer development, refined your idea and come up with a revenue model. Now comes the fun part – actually building the product! We are experts in prototyping and providing a beta version for the minimum viable product!
Beta Testing – User feedback
You’ve built your initial (prototype) product – now get it in the hands of customers and end users! We have a network of ready users in all the segments of the markets to test and validate the product or service!
Marketing strategies, though widely varied, are all aimed at convincing customers to try out or keep using your product or service. You need to understand your market and differentiate yourself from the competition.
You have your story set. You’ve tested your product. You have early users. We help you fine tune for the perfect pitch. Startups fail to raise funding simply because their pitch sucks! Yes, the majority of the pitches fail to attract funders.
We have a great network of private, angel and venture capital investors. Each model requires a different funding approach; one template cannot be used for all. So we carefully guide you to the right funding match.
