How do I evaluate my idea in the cheapest way possible?
Start by validating the problem. Just because you think it’s a problem, doesn’t mean others agree.
Ask people what they think! Carrie Griffith, Founder and CEO of Little Nugget(and a guest on the Better Product podcast), made a powerpoint and shared with other moms who she wanted to help.
Ensure that you are talking to all the right people by thinking through every potential stakeholder. For example, if you had an idea to create a parking app for grocery stores, you should validate the idea with the shoppers and store owners.
