How to start work on a startup?

The topic was inspired by the impressions of the reports on the swpiter and the post on how not to sell the car :)

How to work on a startup and always win?

The point is, there is a certain portion of work that needs to be done before you start spending your money. I tried to describe the sequence of these actions.

The picture on the left is clickable, and below is a text description in 12 steps of how to initiate a startup and always win.

1. Idea!

And so, it all starts with an idea that somehow came to your mind. The idea looks interesting and seductive. She motivates you.

The most important thing in the idea is not to lose motivation up to 10 steps and then in any case you will get the benefit for yourself.

2. Detailed ideas

It is necessary at least approximately to answer these questions:
At this stage it is too early to answer the questions:

3. Describe the idea

Describe how you imagine the idea. Put thoughts on paper. Create linked text.

4. Formulate the essence

The formulation of the essence of the idea should be such that it can be told in 1.5-2 minutes. And, most importantly, those who were told the idea understood and interested, want to know the details.

5. Tell us about the idea

Do not let the idea lie down! Tell about the idea to those who, in your opinion, could be interested in it, help or give an expert opinion.

In the process of conversations, the idea will mutate, be enriched with details, describe them, as in paragraph (3).

6. Describe the product idea

The final stage in the development of an idea is products. Products that will consume.

Important product features are:

7. Get someone interested in the product.

Try to interest someone from Central Asia or from experts who worked with Central Asia product.

If you are not interested, find out why.

The idea of ​​the product must be tested on hamsters.

The idea will continue to mutate, go back to point (6) and make a change to the product description!

8. Specify the cost of the project

In the process of conversations do not forget to find out the expert opinion on the cost of product development. Based on the description, such conclusions can already be made.

In the expenditure part should be detailed:Do not forget to change the product description when specifying the expenditure part!

9. Describe the risks

The time has come to describe the risks of the project.

The risks are different, here is an incomplete list of them:
For each risk it is worth describing:
It may turn out that previously unrecorded risks will affect the product idea. In this case, it is worth going back to point (6), making changes and testing the product again.

10. Evaluate your options.

Up to this point you have worked for yourself and spent only your time (well, and, a little, the time of interlocutors). During the study of issues relating to the idea and the product, you have gained expertise in this area, some contacts began. It is time to assess your ability to implement the project.

It is at this stage that it is sometimes worth refusing to implement the idea. On the other hand, the work already done will be a good reward for the effort! :)

And so, you have:
It is necessary to answer how much of this you have for the implementation of the problem and how much is missing.

11. Make a business plan!

It is necessary to make a business plan based on the lack of own development capabilities:etc.

12. Project launch

Actually, we start work on the project:etc.


Let me draw your attention: most of the time, work on launching a project does not require any additional efforts from you, you just walk, communicate on occasion, remember what was said.

Stages when you need to sit down and do at least something out of 6 out of 13: this is (2), (4), (6), (8), (9) and (11).


Once again, read the description - it looks monstrous. In fact, everything is much simpler and clearer, many items are minimized to the state of checking “aha, everything is ok with that”. In general, you just have to try, nothing terrible (except for wasting time) is not in it.

The text has grown due to an attempt to indicate important points that are worth paying attention to. These points are taken from my own experience and from observations of the projects of friends. And, let's say, before I begin to risk my own money, I always go over the list to find out that I have not forgotten anything. Download the text along with the chart here .


Do not keep ideas in yourself. Start working on them. Even if the idea turns out to be unrealizable in the current situation, dozens of new ideas will appear during the work on it, contacts will appear, and opportunities will emerge.
