When your personal frustration and that great idea just becomes the natural place your brain goes during its “down-time,” you’re ready to become a founder.
I’ve been there and done that, and have developed and progressed several ideas into software apps and hopeful businesses over the years. Just ask me about being at startups like SugarCRM, or designing Perfect Gift, or launching BenchPick. I have a track record that can cover the gamut of completion and success – which I’m lucky to have done.
Recently, I’ve been asked about how to develop a business out of a software idea, so I’ve put together this infographic that makes founding a software company more manageable. May it help you understand that every step focuses around a validation as to what your customer needs, and less so about the “great idea” ownership.
Also one other very important note: ANY step that you complete on your founder journey is an AMAZING feat. Most people don’t have the courage to fail, or the motivation to truly succeed. Good luck, and people like me are here to cheer you on while you incubate an idea into a fundable business plan.
