Validating Your Startup Idea

You suddenly realize that you have an idea for a product or service that will transform the world. If you're an Indian, you're part of an inventive society constantly looking for the next big solution. So this will probably happen to you at least once. But what do you do next?

If you are like most aspiring entrepreneurs, however, the problem comes in the immediate stage following your "ah-ha" moment, when the idea lingers as a passing thought or a series of sticky notes in a journal until the enthusiasm passes.

Ideas stall because the process of getting them to market can seem overwhelming. In reality, if you validate your idea - prove it has worth beyond the bar napkin on which it is scribbled - the process thereafter actually gets much easier.

Validating the demand for your product is more important than ANYTHING. More important than the features, your team, the design, the pricing - everything.

There are many hurdles that stops many would-be entrepreneurs in their tracks before they even take the chance and launch their potential business ventures. To get the answers to the questions lingering in your head and learn from entrepreneurs who have validated their ideas, attend the first edition of Startup SaturdayAhmedabad in 2017.
