People always think about how to innovate and improve their lives with new inventions. A person wakes up in the morning with an idea in his mind and asks himself “what’s next?”. In this article we will answer this question.
The first think you need to do is relax. Many successful entrepreneurs advice to think over the idea for several days and see if the excitement stays or fade. If after several days you’re still excited then it’s time to move on. The next step is to share the idea with close friends or family and understand their opinion. Based on their opinion, we can evaluate how well or bad the idea is and learn from their reaction if the idea needs more sharpening.
The worries and question that rise during the idea stage
There are several more questions that need to be asked other than “what to do with the idea”. How do we keep the idea secret without having other people stealing it? Do we work from home or not? Alone or a team? What is the required budget to develop the idea?
It’s not an easy task to raise funds to an early stage startup. Usually the entrepreneur invests his own capital or asks his family or friends to invest, but since the risk is high at this stage, the expenses should be limited to the minimum required.
After you decided to continue with the idea and answered the above questions, now comes the first practical part. The first step is to build a comprehensive business plan. Its purpose is to validate the business potential of the idea and its technological edge. The business plan helps the entrepreneur to better understand where the startup is headed, who are its competitors, who’s its audience, etc. It also helps the entrepreneur to understand what type of personnel he need. There are several entities that grant initial funding to young businesses, specifically banks and venture capitals, as well as angel investors.
