You have an idea for a tech business. Now what? Whats the best first step?

Youre at the nascent stage when you have the kernel of an idea, but no customers, no product and no funding. You want to create an impactful business, maybe a unicorn worth $1B. But youve never raised investment, let alone sold a company. For your first steps, follow the Nascent Startups 的 path.

Entrepreneurs today often jump into Lean Startup methodology but thats for early-stage startups. The Lean premise is Our customers stopped liking our product and our investors stopped giving us funding. Heres our toolkit. Achieving product-market fit (PMF) requires a product and customers. Yet so many nascent-stage founders make PMF their (unattainable) goal. Its like using a map of New York to navigate San Francisco .

This is why Nascent Startups的 is your on-ramp to The Lean Startup. Right now, dont build a minimum-viable product. And definitely dont validate a hypothesis nor pitch investors. Instead use the Nascent path to quickly gauge whether your pursuing a 1-in-1,000,000 distraction or a 1-in-100 opportunity .
