Pitching your Prototype

jueves, 23 de mayo de 2019 Por James Turnbull

You have a fantastic idea. You've taken the core concepts of that idea and turned them into a prototype, a Minimum Viable Product (MVP). The prototype is the first pass of your solution. It's not pretty, nor complete, and often not tested. Frank Robinson said when he coined the MVP term: "... think big for the long term but small for the short term. Think big enough that the first product is a sound launching pad for it and its next generation and the road map that follows, but not so small that you leave room for a competitor to get the jump on you." Once you have your prototype though, the question becomes how you get that "sound launching pad" in front of potential investors and customers and enable you to grow it into a fully-fledged product.
