If I asked you right now what your startup needs the most, I bet I could predict how you’d respond – “I need capital”. It’s the way almost every startup founder, at any stage, responds. I hear you, even if I don’t agree. Your startup is really nothing more than a big collection of assumptions around an identified problem and a possible solution. You need a roadmap for working through those assumptions efficiently, so you know you’re in the best position possible for success.
