4 Stages of the Entrepreneurial Journey
Explore & Design
You have the seed of a great business idea. You recognise/have identified a problem that needs solving. You may or may or not have a solution in mind which will solve this problem. You need to develop the ability to analyse the problem in greater depth and to understand the core elements that will shape a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) which you will design and test with key stakeholders in your potential business’s ecosystem.
Validate & Evaluate
From the discovery you have done in the Explore & Design phase, you will complete your MVP and refine your value proposition and potential business models. You need to develop the ability to robustly test this in market with early adopters, evaluate the market responses to it and adjust/iterate to work towards initial product market fit and a strong V1 of your product/service. You will commence preparing for investor contact.
Launch & Execute
From the validation done in the Validate & Evaluate phase you have validated strong initial product market fit for your product/service and have a strong V1 of your product or service. You are now raising or have raised a seed investment round and are proactively selling your product or service to early customers in your serviceable obtainable market. You need to build out your core team and optimise your operations. You need to develop compelling investor documentation which will wow investors at due diligence stage.
Grow & Scale
You have a clearly defined commercial/technical roadmap for your business. You are continually improving your product/service offering and optimising your sales approach. You need to develop your network and operational capability to enable your organisation to grow exponentially and internationally.
